Snow Valley: Two Lakes for the Price of 12 Miles

Updated: Aug 1, 2022

Today was an absolutely amazing day to enjoy the outdoors. We hit a 12-miler on the Tahoe Rim Trail -- our longest hike of this season. The skies were clear and blue and beautiful. We ran into some fierce wind in some areas, but especially at the top of our climb. Other than that, it was a perfect day for a perfect Tahoe hike.

Incredible views of Lake Tahoe from TRT.

2313' elevation gain, topped out at 8875', where we sat for a bit, had a snack, snapped some photos, and took in the unique view of Marlette Lake above Lake Tahoe. We are incredibly blessed to live here.
