We took Friday off for Josh’s birthday weekend! He didn’t know where we were going but our first stop was Starbucks for his free birthday drink (a tradition in our household) and then we were on the road! We got to North Lake Tahoe just after noon, had lunch at a deli, and then jumped on a trail for some hiking.
It was warm and sunny but we had sunscreen! The hike, Five Lakes trail, has about 1,000 feet of ascent before descending to the lakes – so the hike up was the hardest part! The dogs wore themselves out QUICKLY by doing their dog thing – running up the trail and then back down to us, over and over! This is our first time ever in Tahoe during the summer and it’s really neat to see places like Alpine Meadows without snow!
