|We drove up on Friday early enough to avoid the 8 hour nightmare that
others experienced. We brought up leftovers for dinner (lasagne) and bagels
for breakfast so we could just cuddle up with a slice of marionberry pie
(form Ikeda's in Auburn) and a glass of Madeira (V. Sattui) before bed.
I went skiing the next couple of days while Mary lazed about the cabin recovering from a cold.
On Monday, we both went to Tahoe-Donner XC for a beautiful day of skiing the trails of the Euer Valley.
|The weather turned cloudy and cold but that just made the skiing better... Appearently, I got excited and couldn't limit myself to the groomed trails. That's me (to the left), going where no Bob has gone before.|
Later in the week, we drove down to Tahoe XC (near the lake). There's a black diamond trail there with some fabulous views of the lake:
Whatever that is, it's south of Diamond Peak...
You can see all the way to Kirkwood!
