(11/13/11) Tahoe

Gee, this trip was quite the adventure. My family went as a birthday trip for my (now 18 year old) brother, Justice. It included driving two hours through the mountains with the new Coldplay album turned up loud (cause it's AWESOME, if you haven't heard it yet), hiking through ridiculously gorgeous forests full of colored leaves, eating garlic bread sandwiches that were delicious but had garlic that stuck to my thumbs all day long, and finally getting lost out in the woods as it was getting dark.

We started out by just driving along the west side of the lake, sometimes getting a glimpse of the water here and there through the trees until we pulled off to the side of the road and began hiking.

The light was just so yummy:

I hadn't seen fall-colored leaves in so long that it was a bit of a shock to realize how bright they actually are:

Random moonscapeish rocks in the middle of a forest:
Random snow makes my day 32789432 times better than anything else could:
The last picture I took that day... before we completely lost our trail through the woods and got rather stranded! Next time we hike that trail, I think we'll be paying more attention as to where the trail is and where it isn't:

Truly a majestic place.

Beats Carlin Park by a mile.
