Forever Adventuring

Monthly Archives: February 2015

It’s still warm and sunny here in Lake Tahoe. As much as I wish we had some snow to hit up the slopes and end our drought, I have to say that I don’t mind getting outdoors after work instead of slaving away on the treadmill. Today I did an easy 3 mile jog along Tahoe’s East shore above Skunk Harbor. The beaches were empty and it was an absolutely perfect afternoon…. Read More

Do you remember me telling you how beautiful my hike up Tunnel Creek was yesterday? Well, today looked a lot more like February is supposed to in Lake Tahoe.
