... it to the parking lot before it was pitch black.
Not long after we found ourselves at hearing dull thunder with dark clouds over head. The smart thing to do was not to summit, but being the invincible young person that I am, I convinced Charlie flo to at least try with me. We started crushing out way up. With the soul intent of getting up and getting down. Not letting either the thin air or the incline slow us down. And as we reached the top it seemed as if the storm clouds had blown ...
I've completed day two of my cross country motorcycle trip. Today I rode from Three Rivers, CA to Topaz Lake, NV via Sequoia National Park and the Sonora Pass which is in the Stanislaus National Forest via route 108 which is just north of Yosemite.
At 0630 I headed north east from three rivers to the entrance of sequoia national park. The giant sequoias are about 18 miles up one of the most challenging roads I've ever tackled on ...
... equipment to help with the fire and they had set up areas to inform people about the fire on the side of the road. They had blocked off all the little parking spots on the side of the road where you would normally take photos of the park for safety reasons but people were still stopping right on the road to take photos of all the black trees. Madi wondered what had happened to all ...
Legs were a bit stiff this when I woke this morning, mot surprised after the Mt Tallac hike yesterday, so decided for a less strenuous hike with nice scenery, Lake Aloha trail. Scenery was great, you spend a good part of the hike with views of beautiful lakes, mountains with some snow still on the, or through woodland. The trail was fairly flat with a couple of steep sections which was fine, only complaint was the amount of stones on the trail, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Paradice Motel South Lake Tahoe
We had a perfect 20th anniversary weekend at the Paradice Motel. I chose that hotel based on it's trip advisor rating. The room was a bit small, but adequate. Beautifully decorated. We had a little trouble with the cable tv, but the owners replaced our tv immediately. When we told them we were celebrating our anniversary, the next time we came back to our room, they had decorated it with a banner and gave us imported champagne! Very comfortable beds, fan in the room. We had fruit, candy, gift bags, and even water for the drive home! Location was fantastic. We rented bikes and kiyaks and they made us reservations for the casino show. I have never had this kind of service in my life. Bravo to the new young owners!
Noting the great reviews in Trip Advisor, we contacted the Paradice Motel by phone. The owner booked us for one night on August 19,2007. When we checked in, we had the opportunity of meeting the owners, Jason and Perrine. They are a very young couple that have devoted all their time and energy to refurbishing and updating this motel. The colors, furniture and bedding all worked so well. Very clean and soothing. The clean fresh air of Lake Tahoe along with the positive energy of our room, made this a memorable experience. We have advised all of our family and friends to stay here when visiting Lake Tahoe.
What an adorable motel. From the outside it doesn't look like anything special (not bad, just typical), but once you get inside the rooms it was fantastic. I love boutique hotels and this one doesn't disappoint. From the relaxing decor to the fruit plate to the turn down service, Paradice was a great experience. The front desk staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be staying there next time we are in Lake Tahoe.
A great find!
We found Paradice when looking for a reasonably priced room to stay on a Saturday night to go to a concert at the Harrah's ampitheater. The location was awesome, walking distance to the casinos, shopping & restaurants. The room was clean and nicely decorated in a cool & comfortable way, (no cheesy polyester bedspread). The hospitality of the owners was above & beyond what you would expect and it was very impressive. I would give it a 5 but our room didn't have a/c and it was just a little on the small side, but overall a great place to stay!
My husband and I decided to go to Tahoe on a whim. We are so glad that we chose the Paradice Motel. Our room was very clean, well decorated (think Ikea) and very spacious! I was also pleasantly surprised that we had a microwave and a mini fridge.
Wow! Great place!
We stayed here because it was one of the only places close to the casinos that was available, and what a nice surprise we had. The room was very clean, well furnished, and decorated with lots of nice upgrades. We especially appreciated the high quality sheets! What really sets this place apart is the attention to detail and SERVICE that the owners put in to it. Our one and only complaint was that we happened to be in Tahoe on a very hot night, and our room had no A/C. (Hence the 4 stars) Although it's not common to be that warm at night in Tahoe, if you're going in the summer, I'd recommend that you request A/C in the room. Again, the couple who owns the place was really fantastic. I take my hat off to them!
Just came back from a wedding in Tahoe and had a fantastic time! Much in part to the fantastic service and hospitality of the Paradice Motel. The couple running the motel were very friendly and helped with directions/suggestions on what and where to go. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the turndown service was a wonderful surprise! I will be returning to the motel the next time I'm in Tahoe without a doubt. Thanks for the great hospitality, keep up the good work!!
Modest yet a cut above - a pleasant surprise.
We learned that this motel is owned and run by a young couple who took a rather average property and put some love and care into it. They are very friendly and accommodating. The interiors are clean and nicely decorated and the beds are pillow-topped mattresses that were a welcome relief to our travel weary backs. Every night we received chocolates and Perrier.
The location was good. We were within easy walking distance to South Lake Tahoe shopping and dining as well as the lake. Speaking of the lake, we got a free pass to the beach park just down the street.
The price was very reasonable for the area. The Paradice Motel exceeded our expectations.
Pair of dice is very nice
Just back from Tahoe, this was my 8th trip. My stay at the Paradice Motel was my best motel expreince ever! Dont get me wrong this is no Four Seasons but I think someone forgot to tell the staff. This place is a little pricier than most of the motels in tahoe but worth every cent (maybe even more) (dont tell them!) The rooms are all remodeled and i felt like i was staying in someones home (really nice home) The staff all think they work at the Ritz and will bend over backwards to make sure your happy. THey clean the room twice a day and even leave a chocolate on your pillow. This is the only place i will ever stay in Tahoe in the future. This little gem of a "motel" I highly recommend it and then some.
