The gondola took off with surprising swiftness, cables and pulleys whisking up the mountainside with silent precision. From the horizon rose Lake Tahoe, a sapphire ringed in aquamarine and emerald. It was an uncommonly resplendent sight, but I couldn't help but divert my eyes back toward the gondola station, where we had left behind something even rarer: a second chance. If ever there was a place that needed a second chance, it is South Lake Tahoe.

The U.S. Forest Service plans to triple the amount of logging in the Tahoe Basin next year in an effort to clear an estimated one out of five dead and dying fir trees in the Sierra Nevada, officials said. Three years of drought and an ongoing attack by the fir engraver beetle have wiped out large sections of forest and speckled the once-emerald-green basin with brown trees.

For Dave and Christine Latshaw, the little bed and breakfast they opened in May on the outskirts of town was a dream come true -- a means to abandon the stress of Southern California for the calm and majesty of this famous resort community. The Fireside Lodge is so called for the cozy hearths that adorn each of its nine guest rooms.

Some fires race across grasslands and others burn miles of brush. But for firefighters, the most difficult are those that leap from treetop to treetop. The blaze that has destroyed so much so quickly near Lake Tahoe is the latter, the kind known as a "crown fire" to the frustrated professionals who struggle to fight them, let alone understand them.

The mood of the crowd jammed into the meeting room was angry. Many had lost their homes to the forest fire that swept through the Sierra Nevada just south of Lake Tahoe. They said they were angry at bureaucrats and environmentalists who made cutting of trees and clearing of land difficult. There was always too much red tape, they said, and now it was too late.
