Why Did The Oracle Of Amun In Egypt Send The Idiot To A Mountain Lake In California?

The Oracle of Amun in Siwa, Egypt, didn’t just tell The Idiot to discuss climate change with the governor of California in Sacramento.

It (The Oracle is sexless) also asked him to gather a group of 20-somethings at Fallen Leaf Lake less than a mile south of Lake Tahoe, host a conference about climate change at an elevation of 6,377 feet, and report the results to the governors of both California and Nevada.

The Idiot, following instructions given to him by The Oracle of Amun in Egypt’s Siwa Oasis, went to Fallen Leaf Lake less than a mile south of expansive Lake Tahoe.

The Idiot found a dozen 20-something volleyball players, rock climbers and sunbathers at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center in early June and invited them to discuss climate change on a deck overlooking Fallen Leaf Lake, which is 2.9 miles long and located within National Forest Service land.

The Idiot put on an old school Stanford swim team T-shirt to approach 20-something employees at the Stanford Sierra Camp to get their opinions about climate change for The Oracle of Siwa and the governors of California and Nevada.

Volleyball players at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center happily left their game to discuss climate change.

Rock climbers at the “Learn How To Free-Solo Climb El Capitan” climbing wall at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center gleefully joined the climate change discussion.

The Idiot interviewed a sunbather, using SPF 50 sun block, to find out what she thought about the sun, climate change and Ra, the ancient Egyptian sun god. She preferred staying in the sun to attending the climate change discussion.

The group at the Stanford Sierra Conference Center gathered for lunch and a chat about climate change on a deck overlooking Fallen Leaf Lake.

Following a wide-ranging debate about climate change, the Egyptian sun god, the Siwa Oasis and The Oracle of Amun, The Idiot led a hike from Fallen Leaf Lake towards the summit (9,735 feet) of Mount Tallac to observe climate change in real time.

The group climbing towards the summit of Mount Tallac passed raging waterfalls in early June.

The group climbing towards the summit of Mount Tallac had various views of Fallen Leaf Lake and surrounding forests and mountains.

The group climbing towards the summit of Mount Tallac found the path covered with snow at an elevation of 7,420 feet in early June. The next day a foot of snow would fall, large waves formed on Fallen Leaf Lake and the temperature fell 25°F below the seasonal norm. Locals called it “very rare.”

The Idiot recorded the exact altitude and location of snow on the path up Mount Tallac.

The Idiot, who is not a meteorologist, meticulously recorded the climatic and weather details, as well the points raised during the climate change chat, to deliver to the governors of Nevada and California.
