Nice vacation

I took a week off and rode a lot, including 4 days in Lake Tahoe where I rode mountain bikes with 3 strong women. I haven't been there in about 10 years and it's just as beautiful as I remembered.
Here is the crew on the trail.



Marlette Lake @ 7800 feet.



Lake Tahoe as seen from the Flume Trail.



A bit of double track.

Yes. Friday we started at Spooner Lake park to the Flume then Tunnel Creek to the Red House flume and back skirting around Marlette Peak. Two pretty hard climbs in there.
Saturday we did a disorganized torture fest that finished with a 3 mile 10% climb. An easy ride was enjoyed by all on Sunday.
I'll put up some more pics as I get them.

Thanks for the photos John! Looks like a great ride. Jackie and I did a week long tour in Oregon (she's from Oregon) for our vacation. Next time maybe we'll vacation on the mountain bikes!
