Uber had his last year (I hope) of reserves which he completed in San Francisco so I booked plane tickets to follow him out to California... only I went in to Sacramento where a lot of our family lives and spent the two weeks jumping between everyone and having fun getting in last visits before I'll be totting around a baby... of course the fact that I am already totting the baby around didn't dawn on me completely...
One of the first things we did was a day trip up to Lake Tahoe. It's just a little over an hour away from my Grandma's house.
I was lucky the hot weather held off until the last two days I was there so for the most part I enjoyed the best warm but not hot weather. Tahoe is absolutely gorgeous... as always. The ridiculously cold, clear water is the most amazing color of blue.
I got up here quite a few times in the short time I lived in there but I am still wondering why I didn't go more. I don't think I fully realized everything there was to see.
Have you seen these before? We hadn't. Very pretty... but weird too.
Eagle Falls... we drove right over it looking for it... hmmmm where could it be... rolling down our windows might have helped... just maybe.
This is just a small portion of the falls... me trying to get in a better spot so I can see more. Prego people can't climb very well... or as my older brother would say... babies don't belong on walls.
The little island has a house on it... cant remember it's name or anything. The water running over the falls is beyond ice cold. I put my feet in and they died... I had been planning on walking to some rocks 2 feet into the falls but ... not in that cold water!
This is a higher portion of the falls we decided to walk up to the bridge.
It took us a minute to find the stairs... this is them from the top, from the bottom it just looks like the mountain side. I would not want to be the person installing these!
