MendoMoments: Lake Mendocino Through the Lens of a Newcomer


Linda Schupp and her husband moved to Mendocino County recently after they retired so they could be closed to their kids and grandkids. Just beginning to explore the county, Schupp said the “scenery, people, and geography are beautiful, diverse, and fascinating.” She explores Mendocino with her trusted iPhone camera to “take advantage of the lighting and special, unexpected moments.”

Linda Schupp told us she began documenting Lake Mendocino last fall and several occasions since. The drama of a cloudy day is evident in several of the photographs, especially when juxtaposed to her pictures of a bluebird day on the lake. She said her photographs “tell a story of the drought we are experiencing now.”

This is the second running of MendoFever’s newest column, MendoMoments, dedicated to showcasing the land, animals, and people that make up Mendocino County. All Mendocino County residents and visitors are invited to participate. Send photographs to including a description of what your photograph depicts, where it was taken, and any other important details.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at if you know a story that needs to be told.
