My good friend Alex invited a few of us up to her family’s house near Tahoe for Labor Day weekend. It was the perfect way to round out the summer: hiking, eating, and relaxing with friends.
We drove up early Saturday morning and headed out straight for a hike. 4 miles in to a beautiful rest at a lake, then 4 miles back out. That night we barbecued up some veggies and salmon and had a feast. We also spent quality time with Alex’s huge and handsome dogs: Apache, Zephyr, and 3-month old pup Shoshone.
On Sunday some of us went on another hike while the rest of us stayed behind to chill out at Silver Lake. I opted to do the latter. The water was freezing! Kirby and I managed to swim for a quick second before scrambling back out. Russell was more successful at staying submerged for a longer time. After another big delicious family meal, we spent the rest of the evening relaxing on the porch, enjoying the breeze and the sunset. Thanks so much to Alex and her family for sharing their beautiful home and inspiring lifestyle with us. It was truly the perfect weekend get-away.
