Summer Lake Tahoe Trip

IMG_0146

It’s been a while since my last post but I wanted to get this one out before the end of the year. Over the summer, we took a camping trip to Lake Tahoe with Sierra. First things first, if you enjoy camping with your dog, Tahoe needs to be at the top of your list of places to go in California. There are trails, two dog beaches, rafting adventures, and dog friendly restaurants everywhere. Most of the trails are dog friendly and there are so many to choose from, you will never be able to get to them all. They range from easy to difficult, which means there is something for every type of hike you are in the mood for. Some trails require a leash but others allow your well-trained dog to wander off leash to explore. The two beaches are on opposite sides of the lake, so you are never too far from one. The restaurants that are dog friendly have patio seating and some even provide doggie menus as well. We were even able to go river rafting with Sierra, which was one of the highlights of the trip and the whole Tahoe experience wouldn’t have been the same without her. As anyone who has a Husky, or any other high energy dog knows, they are almost impossible to tire out. This was the first trip where I think we actually accomplished this seemingly impossible feat. I couldn’t believe it. There are so many options for dog friendly activities in Tahoe, you could spend all summer here and still barely scratch the surface. In this blog, I will go into detail about everything we were able to cram into the 1 week we spent there.

Yosemite Part 2 – Hiking in the Valley
