I recently had an opportunity to visit, or wander, around northern Nevada. My absolute favorite part of the trip was the loop we made around Lake Tahoe, which is technically both Nevada AND California. I have always heard how beautiful Lake Tahoe is, but I was not prepared. It seems the whole world turned blue - blue skies, blue water... with a glistening blanket of white snow added for good measure. Beautiful. Here is a panoramic view of the lake. The little cabins and docks gave it a bit of a nostalgic feeling.
We stopped for lunch and had the best Mediterranean food at Artemis Lakefront Cafe. (The Artemis Salad was SOOOOO good.) Then we walked on the docks, looked at the boats, watched the ducks preen, and we were off again. It was such a lovely day, lovely company, and such special memories to bring home. I feel my blood pressure going down just thinking about it now.
