Secret Stairs: Part 2 - Silver Lake

Last weekend, Penelope and I took our second Secret Stairs hike together. This time we hiked through the hills of Silver Lake. I fell in love with the neighborhood, it was so beautiful. If we don't end up buying a house in the Pasadena area, we will likely buy in Silver Lake. Here are a few photos from the hike:

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe was beautiful and I couldn't help but to pull over and take some photos during our drive around the lake. These were taken on the Nevada side.

Waterhouse Peak in Lake Tahoe

After three nights of camping in Death Valley it was time for the second portion of our vacation: Lake Tahoe. Penelope found an amazing bed and breakfast called the Fireside Lodge. We will definitely be returning to stay here in the future.

On our first night we had dinner at a restaurant called Evan's, which is right across the street from the Fireside. Our waiter was really cool and he suggested a good place to go skiing or snow-shoeing that the locals love called Waterhouse peak in Luther Pass.

The next morning we drove up to Luther Pass, parked, put on our snowshoes and started up to the peak. The hike was several miles, but the fun part was the 1700 feet of elevation we gained. It was great, strenuous snowshoeing. It took two hours to reach the peak and an hour to make it down. Fun stuff!
