A Donner sunrise

My last Tahoe trip post.. (insert frowny face). I will miss the scenic mountains, fresh air and serene outdoors. Notice how I didn’t mention the cold wind, icy steps or pretentious ski resort employees. :) This last batch of photos came from an early outing with Eve to catch the sun rise on Donner Lake. We woke up at 5:45 a.m. and set off on the mountain road to our destination – a high vista point looking down at the lake. This was the first sign of color in the sky other than the heavy blue haze that surrounded us. Donner Summit Bridge The sun finally breaks through the clouds. A pretty view of Donner Lake on the way back to the cabin. This reminded us that sometimes the best shots are the unplanned ones! Historic downtown Truckee in the evening. I hope they keep those twinkle lights on year round. Thank you Lake Tahoe, Truckee and to our friends for the great memories!
