One of our favorite hikes in the Lake Tahoe area is the Rubicon Trail. The trail hugs the hills above the lake, winding along the coast and affording spectacular views. We almost missed out on our last trip because the day threatened rain.
Kayakers on the shore encouraged us to go ahead with our plans and chance the weather.
So we headed up the hill and ended up hiking about six miles on the trail to Emerald Bay and back. Here are some of the sights along the way.
Several hours later, we returned to our car, full of fresh air and envigorated. Just then, the raindrops started. A few minutes later buckets of water poured down. We just made it!
How about you? Have you taken a risk on an activity that turned out to be memorable?
