Snow Weekend (pt1)

Everyone deserves a Snow Weekend away! And last weekend, Lake Tahoe was our goal. Luckily for us, this trip did, in fact, happen.

But not without the nail biting, dead-stop traffic waiting, CalTrans for updates dialing, and 2nd resort planning moments!

The previous two days brought a good amount of snow/ rain for the mountains and that resulted in mudslides and trees falling over on most highways. We stuck it out and fortune was on our side because we made it . A lot of cars did not. After waiting for previous minor mudslides/trees to be cleared from the road (4 hours worth of waiting!)  a major mudslide occurred on our HWY 50 in a spot we had  just passed. It would have been a little heart wrenching to be told to go home after so much time and effort had been invested in our trek!

Where most of our waiting took place. At least our view wasn’t too bad.

I’d say it was definitely worth it.

 

Snow Day

This is what snowboarding looks like when you haven’t gone in five years.

You are slow.

You fall a lot.

And you film it all .

(This applies to all, except josh, who goes every year.)

Snow day a couple weeks ago, when I was home:

Munich

Munich, Germany

Munich is the capital and largest city of the German state of Bavaria. It is located on the River Isar north of the Bavarian Alps. Munich is the third largest city in Germany, after Berlin and Hamburg.

I love Munich.

I have been a couple times.

But the first was pretty amazing.
