Thursday we left Corning, CA and headed south on I-5 to Sacramento, took a left and headed up and up and up.. when we hit the 2 lane windy mountain road the lightning, thunder and heavy rain began. Quite a journey to Lake Tahoe! But we got here, found our hotel and checked in. I was charmed by the view out of our room!
Our cute little room.
There is a restaurant on the pier where we had lunch. We walked out on the pier afterwards. Not much sun.
Many boats are moored out by the pier.
When I walked out on the beach, I snapped a shot of the big casinos on the Nevada side of the lake. Harrahs, Hard Rock, a few others.
Looking back at our hotel from the pier, our room is on the right and the left side of that part.
Every time you look at the lake it looks different. :-)
After lunch we did some sight-seeing.. we stopped at a really nice viewpoint at Emerald Bay... we were greeting by some cute, well-fed chipmunks.
Do you have chipmunks where you live? The live in the mountains here.
Looking down at the crystal clear water.
There is only ONE island in Lake Tahoe!
Isn't it neat?
Looking out across the large expanse of lake.
A woman built a stone castle down there.. we did not visit. But it's cool.
The mountain.. sorry I'm not giving my usual details, but we have to head out and begin our next journey.
There are HUGE boulders of granite all over here.. love the green lichen.
This green is one of my favorite colors.
We drove on to Harrahs for a steak dinner on the 18th floor.. oh my goodness my friends.. this meal was one of the best I've ever had! The flavors were amazing! The potatoes had garlic butter on top. The steak was delish!
Here is the sunset I took from the 18th floor after dinner.
We went to the casino and I put $5 in a penny slot machine and in two pushes of two button and in 3 seconds it was gone. I told Dayle that was it.. no more.. and we headed back to the hotel. We're ready to go, so I will bid you adieu. We may be skipping visiting Yosemite as it snowed there yesterday! We might head on to Las Vegas. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping in! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
