This picture was taken at Lake Tahoe. Beautiful lake and very cold water.
We spend several hours the next day enjoying the lake and traveling the 70+ miles around the entire lake. One of my favorite views was the castle on the lake. It is called Vikingsholm Castle. We didn't take the mile hike down to it because I was freezing. We decided to take pictures of the castle from the top of the mountain. A bit of info: The drive around the lake takes you through California and into Nevada and back into California. I think the Nevada sections were the best.
View from our hotel.
One morning, we drove to Muir Woods in San Francisco. It was a very long drive. It is on the other side of the state from Lake Tahoe. However, it was well worth the drive to see the redwoods.
Beautiful trees in Muir Woods
The famous Highway 1.
Views of the Golden Gate Bridge.
In the town of Truckee, CA, is the HGTV 2014 Dream Home. We took a drive to see it but it was in a gated community and they don't allow visitors. We tried to sweet talk our way in with our Texas sweetness but it didn't work. It doesn't hurt to try, right?
Even though we didn't get to tour the HGTV home, the drive there was gorgeous.
I hope you enjoyed a non-educational day today on my blog.
