into the wild

Water taxi dock at Upper Echo Lake
We live in the Sierra foothills not far from Lake Tahoe. It's a pretty area with some fantastic hiking trails and lakes for kayaking nearby in the Sierra Nevada. This summer I've been integrating more outside activity with my cycling for a fit body and a healthy soul.

Had an idea...why not utilize this blog as a journal for my outdoor adventures?

This photo is from a last minute hike at Echo Lake. It was cool and windy when we first arrived but thankfully we decided to go forward with our plan to try this short (5.3 miles), easy hike along the lake. This trail is part of the Pacific Crest Trail and the Tahoe Rim Trail. We loved it. No exaggeration. Loved it.
