Lake Tahoe

We didn't go to Lake Tahoe to ski, which made us an oddity right there.... but we did go to see scenery. The drive up there was exciting as we drove into mountains with snow appearing as we progressed.
Our first view of Lake Tahoe - little did we know it was our last until the day we left...

Christmas Day- definitely a white Christmas - we had about 15 inches on the lake level and more up on the slopes, in fact most ski areas were closed at least part of the day.  

We went for walks in the snow, ate at a couple of very good restaurants - from a tiny southern BBQ, Womacks which was exquisite Southern cooking in a fun atmosphere, the unassuming Driftwood Cafe which had great sandwiches, to an expensive Hawaiian seafood restaurant, Kalani's. Enjoyed good breakfasts at Embassy Suites too.

By that afternoon the sky was clearing and by Dec 26th, it was sunny and warmer and beautiful.
Driving home the roads were already cleared - and full of people arriving for the New Years holiday skiing.
