I LOVE Tahoe...

...and when i DO finally win, that is where i'll move.

we got there saturday morning and did a 2.5 hour snow shoe. this is what one looks like on a low-carb diet trying to do the most strenuous of exercises...
(can you see me? I'm resting full out!)

but I trudge on...me and the lonely tree...


but THIS was the bitch. it may not look steep but, trust me...it was. and it hurt my heart and lungs to make it to the top but i had to or i would roll down.



The view was incredible...


FINALLY, after a larabar and a gallon of water later, we check into our hotel room. now THAT'S what i call fun! we went down to the hot tub, hung out like celebrities, took naps, gambled, ate and then crashed again.

and there just ain't views when you're snowshoeing...there's views from our room!




the only bummer part about the hotel was my pillow was huge. I kept waking up becuase it's quite difficult to sleep wth your chin on your chest. I, for one, love pancake pillows.

see? you don't need* to win the lottery to have rich experiences.




*You do, however, need to win to stay. which is my whole bitch.

ya, those pictures are great....but they're all of SNOW! Not so great! ;)

do you play the lottery alot? I only play when it gets really big and my chances of winning are practically nil.

If you absolutely gotta play in the snow, it might as well be in beautiful surroundings!

Amazing set of pics. Compared to sloppy old Minnesota, Tahoe looks like a sort of modern day Rockwell painting if he had painted ultra-realistic paintings.

Being raised in that area, you can HAVE it. I'll take the ocean and fluffy hard pillows, thanks!

GOD, you NEVER invite me ANYWHERE!

My high school friend has a free hotel suite in Tahoe for the week of March 19th.

I was going back and forth as to if I should go ... until I saw these pictures.

Here I come!
