We were so looking forward to our time here in Lake Tahoe, but sadly it has not lived up to our expectations. It is simply was too crowded here. Even driving a few miles to go hiking is an adventure. This morning we decided that the only way to escape the crowds was to paddle our way to freedom. We inflated our new Kayaks and humped them across the street to the beach. Once there we could not get into the water fast enough. The loud music and partying on the beach was really killing the vibe we have been working on during this trip. A few furious minutes of paddling and the crowds and the noise started to dull into the background of the mountains. Within 10 minutes we were free. It was like someone flipped a switch and we were back in our grove. We spent a few hours exploring some really cool coves and inlets. We beached the kayaks on some rocks and enjoyed a break from paddling and had a few snacks with the snow capped mountains providing a nice back drop. Once we got back to the beach the madness started up again. There were ambulances treating drunk kids, police arresting roudy young men and general madness everywhere.Tomorrow we are getting outta Dodge bright and early. We are  heading to Yosemite which we are hoping to be the highlight of our trip.
