Fifth year anniversary trip with @hellomae brought us back to Tahoe, our wedding location. Melody wanted to circumnavigate the lake, which was deemed as the 165 mile club, but our plans changed after we were unable to muster up anymore energy on our 87 mile trek from the Nevada California state line to Tahoe City. It was tough to stop, since Melody is one of the most resilient people I know. Once she has made up her mind, there's not much that can stop her.
The good news is that, continuing with tradition, we stayed at an alpine lake with a mountainous view every night. We headed from Kingsbury South trailhead at the start of our Tahoe Rim Trail bid to Star Lake as our easy 9 mile first day. Then headed 17 miles to Round Lake.
Our plans were changed after being notified our third lake wasn't available for camping, so we were assisted on a water taxi to split up our 19 mile third day to Lake of the Woods in Desolation Wilderness, a location I'm dying to go back to. Next stop, a short 11 mile hike to Fontanillis Lake, but after our hardest climb up Dick's Pass. And lastly, the swan song at our last stop with a wonderful smoke free view of Tahoe.
