Travel Blogs from South Lake Tahoe
So for the very first time, Amanda and Ben did separate activities! They have been separated *counts* 4 times (Arequipa, Cusco, Lima and Chicago) when Ben has been sick/tired and Amanda went exploring, but have never actively done different things. So this blog is from both of us! Amanda is going to write like this.
And Ben is going to …
... for us. With blue to our left and black to our right, we found a gray friendly sky above us, and beautiful scenery around us when we reached the top.
From 10,800 ft up we were able to see Reno, a tiny little city of in the distance. We saw all the mountains around us, all shorter than we stood now. And we saw the massive yet delicate lake Tahoe not far away. We caught our breath, took some pictures and relaxed a bit before pounding our way down the mountain.
4 miles to go ...
... The road has few barriers or guardrails and is chocked full of switchbacks and steep climbs that take you over 10000 feet. When I arrived at the top of the mountain I was greeted by one of the most beautiful and incredible sights I've ever seen. The Sequoia trees are absolutely massive some are 270+ feet tall and 30+ feet in circumference. I took a lot of pictures but the will probably fail to convey the massive size of these trees.
... we hope they got out okay.
After the very long drive it was late by the time we got to Lake Tahoe and we could only just see the lake which is huge the town is busy all year as they play on the lake during summer and then ski in winter, we passed some very big houses.
We were looking forward to waking in the morning and seeing the lake.

... been very easy to sprain an angle or worse, luckily I just suffer from sore feet afterwards! :) Towards the end of the hike, passed a couple who had a choc, black and gold Labrador, gorgeous! After the hike I spent some time exploring South Lake Tahoe, nice vibe and plenty to do / see. This is a great place to visit, can definitely see why it's so popular all year round.
