You see that incredibly steep hillside there? And all of those trees sort of clustered together on fire at the same time, so this fire damaged trees falling over is a huge concern for firefighters.

"To california now for the latest on the mass of kaldor fire. That's threatening lake tahoe. Npr's kirk siegler is in the town of south lake tahoe which evacuated yesterday and he's been watching the fire blow across the crest of the sierra nevada mountains and toward densely populated areas around the lake. Kirk i i just want to start with how close you are to the fire at this point In does this look like it's beginning to move towards town. Well everyone up here. Who has left is closed. And that's a very real scenario audie Because of the spotting the numbers are the big part of the story. Right now. Where i've been today down in the village of buyers about a mile or two from the main flank of the fire there was spotting out in front of it and by that it's the embers shooting out and starting new fires out in front of the main flank. Firefighters are chasing these everywhere today. The wind is just awful. You may hear behind me as we talk. And that's making things even more dicey so the worry here in basically everywhere is around the basin. Is that one of these embers you know drifts in catches a pie needle say in a homes rain gutter or up on a roof and then starts jumping from house to house and burning homes and buildings. But just so i'm clear. Has everyone left and evacuated. What's the state of things pretty much so you know. I can't overstate how eerie it feels to be here in south lake. Tahoe right now. It's basically a deserted city. You know apart from the police car that will drive by me. Here or The fire trucks of course. I'm in a abandoned parking lot of a shopping center all the hotels or shut the restaurants or shut the neighborhoods of emptied out for the most part. And if you get the feel that people Are bracing for the worst. There are some sprinklers. Running in the air as Frankly dangerous breathe. I met bob child who is one of a few people who stayed behind to try to save his home. And douse any of these spot. Fires that may land on his property. He's a retired firefighter. He's lived up here in tahoe for fifty years and he told me he's got a generator and well water and a month supply of food. Some of my family thinks. I'm crazy but i tell them i might be crazy but not stupid. I know when to get out but hopefully that won't come to that. And of course people sometimes stay for many different reasons. Not everyone has resourced right. His trial I wanna talk about more populated neighborhoods because if the fire moves in that direction. How does that change the firefighting response. Well it becomes an urban firefight. It changes it completely but this is a pretty familiar scene especially here in california now The good news on that because it's mostly all emptied out You know firefighters can stage in places and get trucks in here much easier than say if it was happening. Wild tahoe is being evacuated. So that's good news This kind of major fire is something people around this basin have been planning for and worried about for years. I've been driving around today. You've got all these neighborhoods in the forests line with those signature. Famous pine trees of lake tahoe. And you do see a lot of homes in motels that are older and some. Don't look to code built out of wood. But i also struck not seeing a lot of brush or a lot of major fuels really on the ground. It's pretty cleared out so all the work they've been doing here is definitely a being put to the test. Plus the other factor is the weather. Right that's right. It is extremely windy and erratic winds and there's a red flag warning. One of those dreaded warnings for extreme fire behavior lasting through tomorrow night. And you know even if we're win the winds die down. You're just not going to be able to put a fire like this out The latest estimates. We got this morning. Were re even just getting containment out By mid october you know audie. Climate change is a real big deal in. These fires are huge. You add into that. Past forest management decisions that left these forests way overgrown and the tahoe basin and all around the west and it's a crisis This fire is gonna burn probably until it snows. That's npr's kirk siegler. Thank you for your reporting. Please stay safe. You're welcome glad to do it..

"On the golf course on the eighteenth fairway with the lake in the mountains in in the whole bob ross painting basically as a as a backdrop i mean it's totally different than any other outdoor game that they've ever tried to i guess create. It's got that whole mystery. Alaska feel in st mayor. I think from the nhl officer and other folks have talked about that specifically that movie trying to you know sort of use that as inspiration to create something. I think it's called. I'm i wish there was a way to do it in still have fans or something like that. I know they. They can't i think the fact that it's such a i guess made-for-tv event because of the way that the rink is being built and where it's being built in all that. Maybe that's the one i guess. If if i'm going to knock it or something you know i would say. I wish there was a way to have fans in. Obviously you know this being covid. Nineteen in coronavirus pandemic and all of that that that makes it tough. But i just i think it's cool. I do wanna see you know sort of how it all comes together and just more than anything. Just what it looks like because i think it's just gonna be all about the visual and and more so than any other outdoor game. Yeah i'm curious. I don't think we've discussed this a lot on the podcast because we haven't had a lot of reason to discuss it on the podcast but dangerous. What are your overall feelings on the nhl outdoor games and the whole experience that the league is. I mean really put into overdrive the last fourteen or so years starting with the two thousand and eight winter classic them love them. Because what are your overall thoughts on these things. I guess that's like. I mean i don't love him i mean just because i'm me and i'm going to always find something to grumble about or whatever but no i think they're cool. I sometimes i sometimes. I worry about when you have two points on. The line in standings are so close because of the in parity that the nhl has with these three points on the line every game in everything that you're playing outside in elements with wind and it might be like literally fifteen or twenty below in these guys out rolling around in a might affect things later on in the standings You can't get the best ice in it might get a funky bounce or all sorts of but you know why it's cool it's worth it I i like the winter classic. I think it's the closest thing to the nhl. Having sort of an event in season nba seems to have christmas day. Thanksgiving is the nfl. Even though bowl games seem to dominate new year's day. The nhl has something. They have that winter classic. You know they have these outdoor games. I thought it was cool that they've done like the heritage thing up in canada where they're playing like cfl stadiums. Different things like that. I i i'm all for spreading the game Trying to different things to capture attention in recognition in the media publicity in an all the sorts of things that come with that. So i if it does those things and i know you know ed grainy. Our colleague has talked some folks this week. And it's going to be writing about that sort of the impact you know just growing the game in in what it has an effect when you see on nbc. It's going to be you know right smack dab in the middle of the day for everybody to kinda see and it's going to be unique and everybody's gonna be talking about it if they were talking about golden knights gold helmets.

To see how this kind of for tv event as you put it actually resonates not just league-wide but nationwide and how many people they do get to kind of turn it tune in just to see what lake tahoe looks like because i think at least on the local level these events are you know really fascinating and really interesting and really fun so i was a senior in college at the university of minnesota when there was actually a stadium series game at the gophers football stadium bank. The minnesota wild hosted the chicago blackhawks. The wild blue him out in front of fifty thousand fifty thousand fans and it was really awesome. It was really really cool experience. I didn't actually go to the game. But i was Working on stories around it. I got to take a tour before the game happened and it was really cool and there a lot of excitement around it because i was living on campus at the time and could obviously tell that there was plenty of people. There that were hyped about the game. And so i think it really resonates on that level. I'm not so sure that especially a lot of the the stadium series games that are not you know the marquee event the winter classic resonate on kind of more of a nationwide level where people all across the country are talking about him so i'm fascinated to kind of be no see what the temperature looks like of that for the lake tahoe experience. You know saturday afternoon sunday morning. How many people are talking about it you know are the highlights on espn. Or whatever. But for i think you know.

Like vr b. o or airbnb. There are some pretty strict laws now surrounding that but you can still find them and do not rent without a hot tub because they should have one that is like that is a requirement. I think that i think that. At some point it might have been state mandated that. Yeah yeah it's actually part of the like contentious new laws about airbnb. Apparently some do she millennials from the bay area where like enjoying themselves too loudly in the hot tub And that is why. And how stricter restrictions so if you go to the hot tub you do so quietly also trying to slip on the stairs. Because i did last week and my entire but is black with bruises. It's rough speaking of falling on your but you can ice skating at heavenly village. That sounds athletic so hard. Pass on that. There's dog sledding at squad which sounds adorable. There's huskies that you can you can dog sled with god. That sounds amazing. I'm not sure the ethical side of it though so you got to look at it. I'd have to do some research. I have been dog sledding. In norway in it was ethical you can definitely have some ethically responsibly treated dogs but they are not. There's no consensus on whether dog sledding is ethical. It depends on the place. So i can't tell you if they have been vetted or not. I have not done that research. If you want something that leah will never do or or i will never do you go cross country skiing royal gorge which is the largest cross country ski area in north america. I don't know why you would say that. I would never do it because you should know that. I love scandanavian. One of my favorites. We've come full circle. I really do want to go back to tahoe again. I know we were there like two days ago. Days ago. it's been. It's been a while. I would like to go back really miss it you know. Yeah and while we were there. I would like to go to The memorial please. Please take me v memorial. Yes you know the the memorial gets buried in snow. Right traction well. Hopefully this has gotten you guys. A little bit hungry to visit the cannibals. Good we should count of how many times we talked about it on her party in this episode. Because i feel like a lot. Yeah can you guys let us know how many we did. And i think that it would be appropriate to In today with Pretty radical eighty ski. Montage music.

I'm a little scared of bears. I'm also just the kind of nervous person in general and get cold at night so I made jeremy you know. Share the hammock with me. We were co hammering and we've split a hammock many time you know it was fine up until this one time. Well we also set up the hammock in the worst way possible. We set up our hammock at night so we were just sort of like. We'll find the first tree that we can and then just grabbed one. That was not the right tree to us. And we did mention the granite in tahoe. There's everywhere just lying around giant. Big old hunks granite. We happen to setup r hanoch on top of a big pile of granite without noticing. Had no idea so middle of the night were sleeping lake to you. Know honeymoon babies that are about to take off a disastrous trip and we awaken with a giant crash because our straps had broken and fell onto the ground onto a pile of rocks. We were sort of like spooned together. In a way that like leah's hip hit. I took the entire like four hundred pound. Hit was the largest. Bruce i have ever had on my body and my life. It looks like the isr on said it really. Like i went into our honeymoon with this bruise that took over my entire leg. I don't think it went away until like peru thought as soon as we woke up with like the snap of the strap and then like a second later fell and my first thought was. We have to get up. There are bears. Yeah which is not how you wanna neither of those things or how you want to wake up and then we had to put the fucking other hammock backup also in the dark and then we love back into it. Yeah well one didn't work with all this way and hopefully the second one holds. Yeah we when we woke up we realized we had just basically. We've been using the same hamic straps for a couple of years had given up under our wait. We are definitely over the weight limit. I'm just there is. There are weight limits for things like this and we were over it and if there was a bear we scared the shit out of that bear. Bear was like whatever animal is in there. I don't wanna take it. How was probably an omen because that was like the last place we went before we left for our honeymoon and we were like man. What a weird travel disaster. That will end as soon as we go on. Our honeymoon legitimately like two days before we left. Yeah that was an omen. What other Fun tahoe stories. We have so. I have to come to mind. The first one was before i was born. Were you there. Was there in spirit. My mom tells me the story all the time. My tahu adventures have started before. I was even a thought. My parents got married in tile a-.

My number to stretch goal was like don't cry so I didn't hit that goal but I did finish the ski lesson and I'm very proud of myself. You can see me being a majestic baby giraffe on skis on my instagram stories under the Tejo Highlight we usually go to South Lake Tahoe mainly because I really like Sierra The thing about Tahoe in the winter though is that in the summer are you can drive from north to south and that's totally fine and it's a beautiful drive and you should do it. It's a beautiful drive also beautiful hike but in the winter you have to commit to North or South because you can't. I usually take the highway route around because it's usually snowed in Yeah so we usually do. South Lake Tahoe but actually both of them are really nice. There's there's very similar things about both of them. Neither of them have like a very walkable. Downtown area I've heard truck. He is really cute but we haven't actually been neither of them had like amazing. Seizing food like Tom. Who is not a foodie destination?

It's like my favorite post hike post skiing now that I've done one ski lesson food. And those also Bob dog the dog a bout. It is pretty good pizza. But it's not it's not like a foodie place you don't go there for the food so honestly picking North or South Lake Tahoe depends entirely on which ski resorts you prefer. and which ones you're going to now. You should know before you go there if you're an east coaster who moved to California and you're like I have skied before you skied a hill. These are gigantic granite mountains mountains. And I say this as somebody who was born in Massachusetts and went to school in Massachusetts and. Yeah he's right it's totally different so there are a ton of ski resorts in Dachau and we can't cover them all here but we can talk about some of our favorites. What is your favorite mine? I always go back to his Sierra. Tahoe it has a special place in my heart mark. The first one I went to. It's the first major wine you hit when you're heading into South Lake and it's one of it's one of the cheaper options and they have a lot of really good I'd like beginner. And Intermediate runs their blues are a little bit easier than most places. So beginners have a lot there. it's also the least crowded. I don't think there's ever been a day where I've where I've waited more than two minutes for a ski lift. which is crazy yeah? It wasn't all this weekend and it's one of the only remaining independently owned ski resorts in Tahoe. Which is really nice? You can tell it's got that like family kind of vibe. It's not like one of the big crazy ones that has like the flashy village or whatever never in it's also sponsored by Subaru which has no bearing on your experience but I just think it's kind of a fun fact. Is that because we own a saber. Al Yes the Saverio belonged to my late grandmother who was also a Subaru Person. She was wonderful. See people we love them. There's boreal mountain boils like probably the most budget friendly but the thing about it is that they have have a freestyle terrain park. That does not sound like my cup of tea. There's there's runs. That aren't the train park. But that's like the main that most of them are terrain. And you pass right by the Donner Party Memorial morial on your way there take it back. We have to go there. That's my new favorite ski resort. I love free styling. I love people. I have to sleep next tonight. This is weird. There's home would which is on the West Shore. It's really small inexpensive and it's got the best view because it's right on the shore. That sounds sounds actually really nice. View is the priority. Then that's the choice for you. Yeah actually that sounds wonderful and last time we were at Costco because we always stop at Costco. Go to see if they have discount lift tickets usually they have Sierra tickets But this year they had homeward think. There's they've stopped carrying zero. It's hard to know but definitely stop by Costco to see if they have discount lift tickets because they usually got something home woods mostly intermediate. But it's still a fantastic option. Let about the Philly higher priced options. So so there's two that immediately come to mind when you think of Tahoe and that Squaw Valley and heavenly it is actually so having these avail L. resort probably the most famous in Tahoe. It's also the largest. It's got a couple of base lodges in one of them is actually in the town of South Lake. Tahoe if you like a walkable area with like shops and stuff heavenly village is definitely what you're looking for. They have a Gondola from the actual town. That's like on the main dragon. A teachable all the way up the mountain and it's right on the border with Nevada. So if you like casinos. They're right there for you. Listen we're going to be honest. We are very very biased towards the California side notice. We have not talked about the Nevada side at all 'cause casinos mostly sorry and then there's squad Alpine So a squad is like for serious people or people who WanNa get lost in Siberia It hosted the Winter Olympics in nineteen eighteen sixty. So that's like that gives you a gauge of how challenging the terrain can be. But it's you know it's like an all all levels resort because it's a major resort. I've actually heard that it's like a really early. Like advanced resort for people that are like very serious about being eighty ski montage stars. They do have beginner runs. But they're typically at the lower side of the mountain and then sugarbowl resort. I like sugar bowl resort because it is another independently owned resort and their claim to fame is being one of the oldest ski resorts in the West and having the deepest pissed and most ridiculous. No out of any of the tahoe resorts and also and this is fun. Little facts which is a semi related. It's located on Donner summit at Donner Pass whereas Donner Pass. Jeremy What does that have to do with We're just talking about. Do you do you everything to come back to the Donner Party. Everything has has to come back to the Donner Party. But also Disney which is my other obsession because Walt Disney was one of the original founders of this resort. That's going to be a trip soon. Actually that's GonNa that'd be the next episode. We're GONNA do it. There are some luxury ski resorts. Kirkwood northstar lovely. How are they couldn't tell you? Never been if you are the type of person who goes to luxury ski resorts. Please let us know how that is. How how that life is like? We are very curious. Now you might be asking like isn't Lake Tahoe. Oh always expensive and the answer is that it doesn't have to be. It really doesn't like you'd think that you know everybody going to Tahoe. Every weekend is super rich and yes. It's true skiing and snowboarding are not the cheapest sports but it doesn't have to be you. Don't have to go skiing snowboarding. While you're there you can go to a budget place and get a cheaper ticket. There are so many ways to make your trip to Tahoe. Oh affordable and the first step that is just google anything about budget tahoe winter and go to our website Yes that's so convenient that we have a giant practical guide ride to planning a lake tahoe winter trip on a budget or you can just click the link in the show notes that works so you might be asking. What else is there to do? If you're not into skiing skiing or snowboarding because you know Donna party breaking your leg all right have. We not moved on from the Donner Party. Jeremy it's just getting really annoying at this point and I wish he would stop. So there's sledding into being you can You can tube Sierra and you can rent the tube and go up this little moving sidewalk or or you can do it the hard way and by a to Amazon. They have some really fine line animals in silly shapes. There's like a fire dragon. He's Kinda my favorite and you can just like go to a good health so we went to spooner summit last year and just like walked up Capitol Hill and then tube down the Little Hill and It was a very good workout and also a lot of fun. There's also snowshoeing. Most of the major resorts will have snow shoe trails. uh-huh Kirkwood has like a whole snowshoeing center. Yeah which is basically just hiking but like legalizing on top of this now. She's pretty awesome. There's my favorite Tahoe in winter. Tippety which is just sitting in a hot tub if you're GONNA rent a cabin and Lake Tahoe which showed there are some available like VR B. O or AIRBNB. There are some. I'm pretty strict laws now surrounding that. But you can still find them and do not rent without a hot tub because they should have one that is like that is a requirement. I think that I think uh-huh some point it might have been state mandated that. Yeah Yeah it's actually part of the like contentious new laws about AIRBNB. Apparently some do she millennials from in the bay area where like enjoying themselves too loudly in the hot tub And that is why Verron out stricter restrictions so if you go to the hot tub you do so quietly also trying to slip on the stairs because I did last week and my entire but is black with bruises. Yeah it's rough speaking of falling on your but you can ice skating at heavenly village. That sounds Cathodic so hard. Pass on that. There's dog sledding. It's coie which sounds adorable. There's huskies that you can you can. Dog sled with sounds amazing. I'm not sure the ethical side of it though so you got to look at it. I'd have to do some research. I have been dog. sledding in Norway in it was ethical you can definitely have awesome ethically responsibly treated dogs but they are not. There's no consensus on whether dog sledding is ethical. It depends on the place so I can't tell you if they have been vetted or not. I have not done that research. If you want something that Leah will never do or I will never do you go cross country skiing Royal Gorge which is the largest cross country ski area. Are you in North America. I don't know why you would say that I would never do it because you should know that. I love Scandanavia one of my favorites. We've come full circle. I really do want to go back to Tahoe again. I know we were just there two days ago days ago. It's been it's been a while I would like to go back really miss it you know. Yeah and while we were there I would like to go to The memorial please. Please take me v Memorial. Yes you know the the memorial gets buried in Snow Right. That's traction well. Hopefully this has gotten you guys a little bit hungry to visit my brother cannibals. It's all we should do like a count of how many times we talked about it on her party in this episode. Because I feel like a lot. Yeah can you guys let us know how many we did. And I think that it would be appropriate to to end today with Some pretty radical eighty ski montage music.

"tahoe" Discussed on The Practical Wanderlust Podcast

"That hill for an hour and everyone's just gone and I have to call the front desk and there's like a guy on the Gondola right now to help Mauve. So you just like had self self-service I feel like I remember sending me panicked facebook messages so I sent you panic facebook messages while I was on the mountain but then I finally got service in the Gondola and I had like one bar our own Magadan so that was the time I almost died in Siberia. Yeah love that. You're so into snowboarding stories like this really makes me excited about how adventurous you are. And not at all the anxious for your safety so besides omens what is there to nothing less podcast over that was it. We just wanted to tell some stories about ourselves on the next episode. We're going to be talking Well let's talk about summer. I so by everything to do in Tahoe John. The summer is go camping. We mentioned deal bliss. It's like one of the best campsites in I think ever in the whole world it's awesome we might. I have an unfair opinion here because one time we rolled into. Dl Bliss like just trying to find a spot and we actually got the nicest campsite. They're probably ever just like show up at a spot you do. It's very competitive to get a spot and deal bliss what we usually do. There's something you can do on reservation dot Gov where you reserve federal campsites. It's you can basically choose your weekend and set up an alert and if somebody else cancels their spot you got their spot. So that's how we roll up with the best campsite because we had gotten somebody else's spot did actually book six months in advance. Like you have to do to get a good spot. All thanks goes but that was really really nice. There was like a bridge in the camp site which was awesome. And they're all right next next to the lake There is a beautiful private beach in that camp site. It's awesome it's really really nice. there's also Meeks Bay so many spe is Down on the shore of Lake Tahoe. And there's Meeks Bay resort. You can camp there as well and that's kind of like right across the street from sort of one of our favorite hikes which we'll talk about In a minute so you get the campsite on the beach and then What are some things that you like to do over there? Well obviously there. Is the beach like tacos awesome beaches. I mean and this like we say that coming from California Allegra we just got beaches on beaches all over the place both sides. It's awesome And you can swim swimming. A swimming area Out like all right off the shore basically basically it is a little cold but compared to the Pacific Ocean. It's actually not that bad people actually rent boats and you can go boating. Yeah we haven't been fancy and acting like a big you know schooner sooner sooner sooner or yacht are those those things are called. We've never had a We have gotten kayaks though which which is great kayaking is one of my favorite things to do when they tahoe and supping. Yeah you can do stand up paddle boarding. Yeah we did that what happened. Do you remember what happened. Do you remember what happened. Tell me about what happened. What happened Leo was was better at it than you? The person who can't even stand up straight because her balances so bad was better at stand up paddle boarding. Yes the world is then. I tried it again in Panama and I was really bad at it. And you're way better at it but I was better at it in Tahoe. And that's what matters you'll talk to you about it in Panama. Yeah well it only happened once. But that's why I stand up. Paddle boarding in lake. Tahoe is the best in the world. Because let me twice and I was better at it. In Lake Tahoe You can also go waterfall hopping. There's like waterfalls all over the place I was GonNa make a joke but then I realized that we did that in the episode description of the title of the episode episode. Last time. I know as long as you don't make me waterfall. Repel I'm good. Tell me about these waterfalls world. Luckily they're smaller than you're used to. Eagle falls is an Emerald Bay. It's there's a little alcove in the lake on the southwest side and and It's a short hike of a hill and you'll just follow the crowds from the Emerald Bay parking lot it's really pretty And it's really like a very quick hike. We say very quick and we're the ones saying quick. He knows actually probably like a one minute. Walk if you're in the south there's also horse tail waterfall. So it's on your way into South Lake Tahoe. The actual town It's eight hundred feet tall and so it's the largest one On thank you. It's the largest one in the area and there's Glen Alpine falls which is right about Fallen Leaf Lake where I've actually gone in hiking a few times around fallen leaf lake and it's cute little ache much smaller than Lake Tahoe. But absolutely beautiful but that one is cool because the water kinda like cascades down these little cliffs so it has has like that waterfall staircase look which really like. Looks like a damn screen saver and you are a really serious hiker. You can attempt the Tahoe rim trail. So let me just give you the backpacker spiel about Tahoe rim. So backpacker describes it as a great long trail for beginners or a laid-back laid-back. Walk in the woods for seasoned Thru Hikers. That sounds perfect for actually. Yeah it's one hundred and sixty five miles long over mind cause all the way around the lake but the good news is there are a lot of places where you can stop and the cop off your hiked. Lots of towns stopping got refuels so it actually does sound like a fairly beginner entry level through hake AAC And it takes about ten to fifteen days though honestly like if we can get back in our hiking I would not mind doing it. Sounds pretty awesome. Actually I really liked desolation wilderness. Elder nece what's it called the solution. That sounds johnstone sounds scary. I was imagining fog everywhere and being lost in like a murky haunted forest filled with like rabid bears fresh carcasses like this is going weirdly. Donner Friday thing. Just let it go all right. Just hold on a few minutes. I was expecting slender Mandalay. Give me directions but actually it's it's gorgeous and really stunning scenery. Probably the most money scenery in Lake Tahoe. Oh yeah there are like a bunch of charred trees which does give it like that creepy. Feel that I was really wanting Because there was a wildfire that went through a while ago please be safe about your fires. y'All leave no trace race but actually no. It's it's stunning gorgeous. And we did that hike. Do you remember Meeks Bay to cry. Lake which is like nine miles round trip desolation wilderness is actually a really big stretch of land so the great thing about it is that you can kind of do an out and back over you want so. We chose Craig Lake. Yes startling across the street from the campsite Meeks Bay and when we started. Actually it was foggy Augie like we had a little bit of that ownby all scary fog which was fantastic. Everything was a little bit eerie. So we just kind of hiked into desolation wilderness nine miles and a and we climbed all the way up. We want some rocky granite cliffs which is a tongue twister solid these gorgeous views and then we started hitting these lakes like one. After a- another there was all these Alpine lakes about five miles in you start hitting them and we wanted to stop it every single one of them. They were all gorgeous. I know we didn't think that it could possibly get more gorgeous. This but Craig Lake is the best one every other Alpine Lake is inferior to Craig Lake worth continuing. Its in. This valley created by mountain peaks and the lake is just a perfect mirror. It's so instagram. I know we had lunch there. And then we head back and it was perfect. My other favorite favorite hike in Lake Tahoe. I think this one is actually like the one to rule them. Aw Is Rubicon trail so rubicon trail starts at dl bliss. It's about another like nine mile round trip very similar so you basically we started using bliss. You're going to hike all the way down from because the Elvis is far above up on the cliffs above Lake Tahoe. You're going to hike down until you got to assure sure through all these like pine trees and granite with just stunning views. Because you're along the Tahoe shoreline but above it. So you're GonNa have all these beautiful views of Lake Tahoe the whole time. Then you're going to get all the way down there There's GonNa be like these meadows that you go through and then you're just gonNA hit a random Norwegian castle and you can get some ice cream there. Yeah which is a wonderful midway point to hike before they go back. There is a Norwegian castle in the middle of the hike. Yeah so it's called Vikings Home Castle which which I feel like if you're gonNA make a Norwegian castle and stick it in the middle of Lake Tahoe that's exactly what you should call it And it's located right along the shores of Emerald Bay. Why okay so so long story? Short rich people tracks. So there's this guy named Ben Holiday and that is his actual name And he decided to build the first summer home in Lake Tahoe. Way Back in the eighteen sixties. This.
