We drove Highway 88 to Tahoe on Saturday with jewel like lakes and plenty of mountain vistas for our flatlander visitors. This is yesterday's blog after the signal at our hotel gave out: Local Access Only.
Sunset over Lake Tahoe isn't as spectacular as we thought it would be, but the air is clean, the visuals spectacular, the sand and the shopping fun. We found lots of kitschy stuff.
None of us gamble, but we watched the horse and dog races in the sports bar at Lakeside Inn and Casino. Dinner at Latin Soul and the $3 drinks at the bar...well, we stayed until 11 p.m. happy as toads.
On Sunday, restaurants were packed. We got a late start. we attempted to drive to Virginia City but a huge accident had traffic in both directions stopped. Like others, we turned around and headed back to Tahoe. Pat and Richard took the tram up to the top of the mountain for beautiful views while the rest of us cruised the shops around town.
On the way home we drove the narrow, winding Ebbetts Pass for beautiful scenery. There aren't many stopping points for pictures. We managed one stop at Mosquito Lake, and home.
