Outdoor Wednesdays-My Favorite Lake

Thanks again to our hostess Susan at A Southern Daydreamer, make sure you check out every one's outdoor posts this week. I always enjoy seeing what everyone shares! I am posting pictures this week from my favorite lake in California.

I love Lake Tahoe, California and look forward to going with my family every year for rest, relaxation and just to enjoy the beautiful scenery. We go boating, hiking and golfing and no matter where you look you can see the beauty in nature from our Creator.

One of the oldest structures around Lake Tahoe.

The Rubicon Trail is an easy trail and we also enjoy hiking up to the falls.

A view from the Spooner Lake Trail near Lake Tahoe, another easy hike.

Have a wonderful Outdoor Wednesday!
