When people hear “Tahoe,” they probably think of the lake (one of the US’s largest, and second deepest behind Crater Lake) or skiing and other winter sports. Truth be told, it’s a fantastic summer destination with mountains to hike, bike paths to shred, roller skating, fly fishing, kayaking, and just about any other outdoor activity suitable for a sunny 75 degrees. We spent the weekend on the North Shore in Truckee, CA which is a 15 minute drive from the lake. While I didn’t make it to the water, there were gondola rides, a little hiking, and wildlife watching in what little time we had between wedding festivities. Beautiful ceremony, beautiful weather, beautiful friends.
