Honeymoon in Tahoe

Overview

Quote:
We went with lots of outdoor expectations and they were all fulfilled. From Hiking, biking, backpacking, kayaking, to riding the Gondola, the steamship cruise, taking in a movie, a comedy club, a birthday dinner and being upgraded to the honeymoon suite at our resort.

Quick Tips:

Best Way To Get Around:

Bikes were provided free at Americana Village, and we were able to walk to most other destinations. We did drive around the lake and to our backpacking trailhead.

The hike up with a loaded pack of about 35 pounds was strenuous in the 80 degree temperatures. When we reached the snow level, temps dropped, but the snow was still melting fast. We began hiking through wet slog. We didn't know if our next step would break through the crust or not. We took lots of fantastic photos and named the small lake after my new bride: Lake Paula. To us, it will always carry that name. The photos, the stars, the quiet and the much cooler temps than at home in Phoenix, make the hike highly recommended.

Attraction

I had kayaked before and wanted to introduce the sport to my new wife. She eagerly jumped into the front of the 2 person sea kayak we rented at Reagan Beach and we took off to see the south shore and paddled all the way north to Zephyr Cove before turning around. Of course, that's when the wind picked up and we had a real battle going against the wind. We got plenty wet, but enjoyed the workout and the fun of it so much that when we returned to Phoenix, we bought 2 kayaks of our own.
