Tahoe Hikes

They call it the “Jewel of the Sierra Nevada,” and once you’ve seen it… you get it. Vast, crystal-clear, and encircled by towering peaks and forest-blanketed mountain wonderlands—all crisscrossed by hundreds of miles of pristine hiking trails—Lake Tahoe is a hiker’s paradise. With meadows bursting with wildflowers, alpine lakes and streams, and million-dollar views of Lake Tahoe around every bend, it’s no surprise that Tahoe hikes peak the interest of hikers from all over the globe.

With thousands of hiking trails at your toe-tips, ranging from easy front-country ambles—like the brand-new, waters-edge East Shore Trail—to way-off-grid, multi-day backpacking trips, or even no-hassle, gondola-accessed ski resort walks to a bird’s-eye view of the lake, sublime hiking awaits from South Lake Tahoe all the way to Mt. Rose. Come see what the #Nevadaside is all about.

April 13th: Seven Keyhole Slots
————————————
Day 2 of camping in Gold Butte National Monument, we went and explored the Seven Keyhole Slots and their associated petroglyphs. These petroglyphs are hundreds, potentially thousands of years old and are pretty incredible to see up close. Even more incredible was discovering them all over the place, even areas you would never think to look. The desert yields such incredible items from our past!

The rail-trail offers panoramic views of the Lake Mead. The trail leads to five railroad tunnels on its way toward Hoover Dam. 
After the dam was completed in 1935, the railroad ceased operation, and in 1962 the tracks were removed; the trail opened in 1995.

#FunFactFriday: Did you know that ponderosa pines are known to smell like vanilla and butterscotch? Scientists believe that this sweet scent comes from a chemical in the sap, that when heated by the sun releases the aroma. Next time you find yourself hiking through these towering trees, try it out for yourself! Follow your nose to find a #ponderosa, or look for the trees with the thick reddish bark and long pine needles. A tree that has been exposed to the sun will have the strongest scent.

Two scenes from our 4 mile out and back hike today. The shade in the forest was a sweet respite from the heat on the open trail. (Some perspective for those on the east coast - it may be 90 degrees but the humidity is only 8%!)

Another Wildflower view. These things are popping all over the place on the north facing slopes at elevation.
