Lake Tahoe ... not what we thought





Okay, forget that when we described Lake Tahoe yesterday we said "think of Silver Lake on steroids in a cereal bowl surrounded by the mountains." Today we took a 75 mile ride around it. Now we would say think "Charlevoix, Traverse City and Mackinaw Island on steroids in a cereal bowl surrounded by the Sierra Nevada Mountains." And, the only thing that amazed us more than the ride and scenery was that Glen and Mary Bo rode their peddle bikes around it (watch the video and note there are no rails and we are above the pine trees). Robin didn't know she was afraid of heights until these last three days of riding. Going for a ride in Michigan is not going to be the same. We had a relaxing day. David finished off what he hopes was his hardest chapter (on the Destroyer Archetype) and was able to get the next chapter half done. We leave for a place called Winnemucca, NV tomorrow (215 miles). Not sure why we picked that place, but it is on the map. The pictures are: 1) the Bo home; 2) the road with no guard rail (can you believe Robin shot that perfect picture with her eyes closed?) 3) the the only island on Lake Tahoe 4) the mountains (note the snow in the peaks).
