Filmed at the Tahoe City Dam (the beginning of the Truckee River) and the “pond” at the River Ranch Lodge (typically used as the exiting point for river upper Truckee River rafting). The drought across the western United States is something we are all aware of, but few have truly seen just how bad things have become. This video was shot after a week of abnormal heavy precipitation in the area, the Truckee river no longer flows from Lake Tahoe, what you see is standing rain water.
