Last weekend we celebrated my 29th birthday with a little weekend getaway to Lake Tahoe. I was hoping to perfectly recreate the trip we took there last year for my 28th birthday, where we went on the most amazing snow hike, but it was sadly not snowing. However, the lake did not disappoint one bit. We went on a 9 mile hike from Emerald Bay to DL Bliss state park (then back again). It was all the more amazing given that Eric was sick. By Sunday, I was unfortunately sick as well :(
I think part of me is sad that I am slowly leaving my 20s but another part of myself is a little ashamed of that. Losing Jenna has taught me how tenuous our grasp on life really is, I'm glad I can keep growing older. It's a gift.
Since on Sunday we were both sick, we didn't get to do another hike in Desolation Wilderness like I had planned, so I am hoping we can go back sometime soon :) I love love love Lake Tahoe :) I spent way too much time taking photos of the water. It was like tropical waters blue.
