I have visited Lake Tahoe many times over the past few years and the reason why is simple. My best friend moved there back in 2012 and I've gone out every year since. Two years ago, I went out as normally planned but brought my other best friend out with me to experience the beauty of this place. She became transfixed as most do and moved out there almost immediately. Now this is great for my two friends but terrible for me since now my two best friends live on the other side of the country. Last week I decided to go out and see them. It's always a blast but disheartening when I have to leave knowing I won't see them for quite some time. Here's some photos I took while exploring the vast beauty of this winter wonderland. Oh, and there's dogs too.
