Lake Tahoe
A friend recalls a canoeing experience at Lake Tahoe that was incredibly amazing. After hearing his story, I was completely sold and wanted a piece of the action myself. Early the next morning, I packed everything up in a hectic and rushed manner and set about. Destination:  Lake Tahoe.


Skiing
Situated at the edge of both Nevada and California, Lake Tahoe is a prime tourism destination. With activities ranging from canoeing in the lake, skiing in the ski resorts, and gambling hanging out at the casinos there is bound to be something for you. Bare in mind, skiing and canoeing starts/ends at different times though. (More on that later)

Playground
Like I said earlier, I was here for some canoeing. One problem! Canoeing season haven’t begun. Much of the streets were still covered in layers of snow.
Snow Cabin
Look at all that snow!
Heavenly Lift
Obvious, canoeing is out of the question. Although, it is already late April skiing is still the main focus.
Snow Cabin
Looking at this board, we can see most of the ski lifts are still operating. This would have been great if only I was here to ski…
Boat
Although canoeing season haven’t started, cruises to see the lake are open if you desperately want some water action.

Beach
Sitting on the beach and looking at the beautiful snow mountain caps I think about the lessons I learned the hard way.
1. Northern California and Southern California have different climates. (Just because canoeing season started in Southern California doesn’t mean the same for Northern California)
2. Do more research before any trip to avoid disappointment.

    Looks like skiing should be fun.

    I actually live pretty close to Lake Tahoe. And yes I don’t think canoeing season really begins until beginning of summer.
