Lake Tahoe

It's been such a fun week at Lake Tahoe. I'm sad that we only have one day left. Here are a few more pictures from our trip.

The water level of the lake is incredibly high this year so they are releasing as much water from it as they can, which translates to no rafting down the Truckee River for us this year. The river is so high it reaches the bridges and flooded the bike path. So instead of a picture of us rafting, you get a picture of our fannies on the aptly named Fanny Bridge watching the water be released.

We spent Monday letterboxing our way around the Lake and discovered some new sites and also visted some old favorites. here we are looking down at Emerald Bay. There's a tea house down on that little island.

We made it to Ben's wedding reception in Sacramento on Tuesday (Larry's best friend from Medical school, who we like to refer to as Basment Benji since he spent a few months living in our basement).

After spending the night at my grandparents' we headed back to Tahoe and visited the Donner Party Memorial. Appropriately it was the only day up here that was cold. They built the rock part of the memorial to show how high the snow was that year, 22 ft.

We spent yesterday kyaking, but I don't have any photos of that for you. Now I have to go so more later!
