The hardest day

Standard

We put out a lot of energy in our running/bike trail adventures on our anniversary vacation in Tahoe but the most challenging and potentially dangerous was a hike we took into the back woods.  It was supposed to be a relatively easy hike meandering besides streams and waterfalls then ending at the mountain top for a free tram ride back down.  It started well.  The scenery was awesome.  Discovering the chair lift  was fun but we never made it to the top.  We lost our path.  We tromped over heavily bushed areas, crossed over the river on boulders and climbed on our bellies over lava rocks that crumbled under our fingers to within 500 feet of the mountain top then had to carefully inch down on our bottoms to safety when it looked too risky to press on.  The most disappointing thing is that Ken’s shot of me inching up the sheer cliff looks, from his perspective right above me, looks like I’m kneeling on the ground with my tush in the air.  O well.  God answered my prayer.  We managed to find our way back and we lived to fight another day!  Hooray!!!  Here is some of our awesome scenery from this risky business.
