Home from Tahoe

We've just returned from a week-long trip to Lake Tahoe with the Walsh family.  The weather was perfect and our days were enjoyable :)  We were able to take in a few hikes, a night of gambling (I learned how to play roulette and I LOVE IT!), and an afternoon of massages.  Adaline seemed to enjoy the backpack carrier we inherited from my sister which made the hikes so much easier than I expected.
I took my camera with intentions of documenting the trip, but after reading two separate blogs that I follow each had posts about getting out from behind the camera to enjoy the moment, I found myself hands-free each day.  Travis and I both took a few pictures with our phones, which turned out okay.  These are of the first leg of the Tahoe Rim Trail starting at Heavenly's Stagecoach Express.


We also walked around Spooner Lake

We met up with some of Sara's friends for a great hike to Angora Lakes

We spent a couple an hour walking around Crystal Bay.  The lake was breath-taking (but Adaline was not so impressed)

We also spent an hour in Tahoe City, scouting out where we can stay next time that allows dogs, and this hotel is high on our list

All in all, it was a great trip and we look forward to getting out to do more hiking soon, now that we know Adaline likes it too!
