Travels In Tahoe CA

Hello, I thought I would share a few photos from one of our jaunts while in Lake Tahoe. We drove about 40 minutes from South LakeTahoe to near the Nevada line and hiked down to Chimney Beach.

This is one of the views we saw on our hike down.

The hike didn't seem very long going down, but with the altitude difference coming back after a long day at the beach and playing round was the opposite. We paced ourselves pretty well but the last climb up was very steep, although you can't tell from this image. I can't wait to share more nature goodness with you!

This photo collage opens bigger, if you'd like to see it up close. Yes, this July there was still plenty of snow on the higher elevations.

It was amazing  to be on the beach with all the views. With it being warm out and snow on the mountains was spectacular. The water was extremely cold and high this year. I was suprised to see sea gulls at such a high elevation and so far from the coast. I wish I could of captured all the birds I saw on photos. I did manage to capture a few more to share later. 

PS. I can't believe we are on our last ten days of vacation. I have a few more things on the list and hope we can squeeze them in! I hope to have some artsy stuff to share with you soon! xo Theresa

Have you managed to get a little travel in lately? What have you been up to? I'd love to know!
