A fun hike at Lake Tahoe


We went to Tahoe with some friends last week and took the kids hiking up Mt. Judah / Donner Peak. It was an awesome hike!

The wildflowers were in full bloom,

the terrain was beautiful,

the kids had a blast (this is a picture of them heading off the trail to check out a patch of snow on the ground),

and the view from the top of Mt. Judah was GORGEOUS!

It ended up being about a six mile hike; we were impressed with how well the kids did (they are all eleven years old or younger). If you ever go to Donner / Tahoe and are looking for a fun hike, I highly recommend this one. :)

    What a great place to take a hike! We have never been to Tahoe, but we hiked many trails in Colorado during our 7 yr period living there. I'm putting Tahoe on my bucket list! Great photo shots!

    What beautiful photos! Looks like a fantastic day. I can't wait until summer arrives here, and we can get out and about into the wilderness – might help knock a few pounds off me too :-)

    OH that looks so up our alley! We love to hike, but have to choose wisely with a 5 year old and an 8 year old. Someday they will be out hiking us! LOL!HUGSKim

    Looks like a beautiful hike Genny! Hope you have had a great Summer! I enjoyed taking a break all Summer from blogging and twitter. I'm just getting back into it a little and trying to catch up on blogs a bit. Hopefully we can get together again with school back in session. :)
