Gallery at Squaw Valley - Keoki Flagg



Dave and I happened upon this wonderful gallery at Squaw Valley USA this past weekend. We were so missing our Honey, a doll of a trip companion. And, excited to see a few ski patrol goldens heading up on the tram to their post mid-mountain at the ski patrol hut.
We then found Gallery Keoki. This is an amazing gallery filled with huge wonderful photographs of the Lake Tahoe area, as well as other sculptures, photos, paintings, and glasswork.
The photographer, Keoki Flagg, did a photo shoot in 2002 for Ski Magazine on ski patrol dogs. The article is called 'Top Dogs'. Many are of golden retreivers, as Alpine Meadows Ski Resort apparently only used goldens for their rescue team. Squaw Valley uses goldens as well as other snow doggies. LOVE the ones above...called 'Nine Golden Sunrise'.

We encourage you to visit Keoki Flagg's website. Wonderful photos.

  14. Hi Honey's mom and dad(sorry I couldn't remember your names),

    I read about this 1000 Golden Retrievers Project and immediately thought of Honey. I know it's very painful for you but I think it would be a great tribute to Honey. You could submit Honey's story to be included in the 1000 GR project. Here's the link to the site: http://www.1000goldens.com/about/

    I hope things are getting a little better.

    Regards,
    YD
