Fall in Tahoe - a little late :)

OK, I know I am wayyyyyy behind schedule - but I found these pics on my computer and they are super worthy of posting. Fall in Tahoe is soooooo outstanding! The colors, the quiet, the weather, it is all the best. You'll see what I mean when you check out the pictures.

We went for a beautiful Fall ride on the South Shore. I'll post directions in the spring.

Time to put on more clothes - it gets crisp now when you gain elevation

Fall leaves are fun to fly through...

Then we went to the Truckee side for a little different terrain at Stampede Reservoir. You should really check this area  out if you haven't ever seen it. There is road riding, mountain biking, motorcycling, swimming, boating, fishing, you name it!

Lots of good spots to pose!

Mid-December Snow!

I was fortunate to make a quick trip up in mid-December right during a storm (thank you Subaru - you were awesome on Donner Summit in the snow!). The snow was outstanding for the time of year, cold, light, and fast for skating at Tahoe XC. Daisy was super excited to nbe back in the snow. The windows are holding our heat in well! We plan on fixing our doors this summer, then we will be so much warmer!

Sorry for the delay in posting my update...I'll try to be better at posting!

I skated up to the Fiberboard Freeway. The snow was perfect!

Daisy was happy to make tracks in the XC tracks also!

We will be up for New Years, stay tuned for more updates and pray for snow!
