Day 10 Lake Tahoe

Sunday we spent just kicking back and enjoying doing nothing all afternoon after gearing up for Monday. We had a lovely day touring Lake Tahoe. Since I had my wallet back life was good again. We headed to the southern end and decided to drive the whole loop. It is just beautiful there so it was a lovely day.

The twisty turny roads were alot of fun!

One of the things I really wanted to do after talking to Shannon was to hike down there and see the Vikingsholm castle. It was much further away than it looks in this zoomed in picture. It was cut throat finding a parking spot first and then we found out we didn't have much time until the y closed so we hustled right down for the last tour of the day.
I was already dreading the hike up.
The castle was lovely.

We spent about a half an hour just looking around and enjoying the inside and the courtyard of the castle.
Then it was time for the dreaded climb out of there. It actually took less time than I thought it would and no one had to drag me out of there!

We drove the rest of the way around the lake then we headed out to Carson City to meet up with Jeff & Rachel. We had a great BBQ dinner and took them back up to 11,000 feet to the condo.
