Trip Report Part 1 lake Tahoe

Part 1 Lake Tahoe

July 15 We arrived at the Reno Airport with no problems. Walked across the street to pick up our rental car. This time it was something different, a Mazda 6. We loaded our baggage, and off we went.

The drive along US-395 was easy. We picked up US-50 West and started our climb up to Lake Tahoe. There were some construction zones in the east bound lane, but it did not effect our drive.

It was slow going around the beach areas and the casinos of Stateline. Our first stop was the Safeway to pick up things for the week.

So, we have been up 12 hours so far and were ready for a short nap. But, it was more that 2 hours to check in time. So we called our resort and they told us if we did not mind having a room on a lower floor, we could check in now. So we went on to the Tahoe Seasons Resort. It is in beautiful area next to Heavenly.

After a short nap, we headed down to Harrah's to the Forest Buffet. We got there when it opened at 5. For us, it was good food at a good price with a great view. It was a great way to end a long day.

July 16 We were up by 6 and packed our road trip bag. We are going to spend a couple days in Mammoth Lakes.

I found out that nothing will wake you up more that diving down the Kingsbury Grade early in the morning with a car you just picked up the day before. My wife tells me that the views were beautiful.

Thank you for reading this part of our trip report. As I have time I will write the rest of them:

I enjoyed reading all your trip reports thus far, and looking at your photos. In fact, I peeked back on some other trips you have taken via the photos.

Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your time in Tahoe.
