    Homeward bound - Lake Tahoe, NV

    November 13, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

    Although a large portion of the day was spent driving between gorgeous mountain regions (actually drove behind Yosemite) we were able to make a single stop. Lake Tahoe is shared between both California and Nevada. We first stopped at a local brewery on the Californian side for some brews. Then hopped over the state line to Nevada Beach. It was a huge beautiful beach, definitely a place to be in the summer.Read more

    Day 10 - Lake Saplenty

    September 17, 2016 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 14 °C

    Today we headed for Lake Tahoe. We drove up and over numerous mountains, passing a few incredibly beautiful lakes to get there. We even crossed the stateline back into Nevada enroute. Just a few miles before our destination we also hit the 1000 mile mark. Woo hoo!

    Lake Tahoe itself serves as a resort in the summer and as a skiing destination in the winter. It's one of the highest, deepest, cleanest and coldest lakes in the world and is longer than the English Channel is wide. True facts. On arrival we had dinner in a traditional 1950s diner that we both enjoyed. Alice had a strawberry milkshake and as part of the 'Wings and Shakes' ethos of this blog, Alice says it was excellent. She particularly enjoyed the strawberry syrup that was mixed through the shake and although not a fan of too much whipped cream in shakes, the right amount was provided. Also, the glace cherry did have to be removed. Just to stress, it was excellent.

    After a quick look around and walk by the beach we went back to our hotel for a quiet night in.

    Song of the Day:
    Counting Crows - Big Yellow Taxi (heard it on the road and felt apt whilst looking at the natural world)

    Yosemite - Tioga - Tahoe

    October 16, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 7 °C

    Nachdem wir zum übernachten nochmal aus dem Park raus gefahren waren, sind wir heute morgen wieder rein und ziemlich zielstrebig Richtung Tioga Pass durch. Zwischendurch haben wir gelegentlich gestoppt und uns kurz die Füße vertreten. Im Tioga Lake (glasklarer Kletscher-See) kurz gebadet und zwischendurch noch ein Pärchen aus Frankreich geknipst.

    Mittagessen kurz vor Lee Vining an einer Art Rasthof. Burger... und Souvenirs

    Dann auf der Suche nach was zu kaufen (Kühlschrank auffüllen) weiter Richtung Lake Tahoe. Kurz vorm Ziel in South Lake Tahoe fanden wir noch einen Safeway, wo wir uns erst mal wieder etwas eingedeckt haben und nach Rückfrage an der Kasse auch unser Nachtlager auf dem Parkplatz aufschlugen.
