Martha’s family shares a family cabin near Fallen Leaf Lake and the Stanford Alumni camp (they’re but a stone’s throw away) and we’ll be spending a week out there in mid-July. The last time we were there was during the summer of 2006 and we had a fantastic time hiking including up Mount Tallac, which sits at nearly 10,000 feet above sea level (9739 to be exact). In fact, that’s where I proposed to Martha! 🙂
This year, we’ll be returning for another week of relaxation (!!!) that will, of course, include plenty of hiking and maybe some canoeing and other fun adventures. We’ll again climb up the “difficult” Mount Tallac, take plenty of photos with Martha’s new camera, and document the whole trip for all you wonderful readers!
We’ll get the cabin from Saturday to Saturday and we’ll finish off the week-long trip with a day in Reno, NV. Rooms are so cheap that we actually save money on the flights, even after adding in the cost of rooms, by waiting. We’ll probably give it all back and more at the tables but that’s how they like it.
We’re looking forward to it!
