Backpacking

Posted on Updated on

Heading out for another backpacking trip in the Tahoe Basin today. Here are some shots from last month’s trip around Tahoe 🙂 Stayed at Round Lake a couple of nights. It’s an easy hike that meanders through a large meadow and ends at an alpine lake. Beautiful sunrises, sunsets and so many stars that you fall asleep if you try to count them the all. All made better with great company. Got to get out more 🙂

134When you head straight down on a slope like this one, you want to lean left the mountain.

Steep

124From the meadow, the trail leads to this steep grade. It’s mostly granite scree and out in the open.  It was a little intimidating at first.
