OK, more like heavy jacket weather but I’ve been listening to the song “sweater weather” by Neighbourhood a lot lately so I thought it was fitting. Have you heard that song?? It’s such a jam. I was up in my old stomping grounds this past weekend and it was one of the coldest but most beautiful weekends up in North Lake Tahoe. Despite the cold, I was outside all weekend soaking in one of the most beautiful scenery’s in the world. When I could muster up enough warmth to take my hands out of my mittens, this is what I was surrounded by.
(Emily and Matt are always kind enough to take me out on their snowmobiles and one of our favorite spots to go to is Watson Peak. Can you beat this view?!)
(Emily is so awesome. She’s so tiny but can rip a sled around better than most boys I know)
(Taking a break and taking in the view)
(Then the sun started setting. These colors never become dull to me. Sunsets are incredible in Tahoe)
(The next day, I woke up to go snowboarding and as I was walking out the door I saw this amazing light shining through the icicles on the front deck)
I headed to Squaw Valley for the day which was a stifling -9 degrees in the morning. However, I was bundled and prepared and no amount of cold weather could have stopped me from enjoying one of my most favorite hobbies. I got to snowboard with some close friends and explore the mountain. With blue skies everywhere, it’s hard not to feel so lucky to have such a beautiful place only a 3 hours drive away.
