That was what you would call a whirlwind vacation. We packed so much into seven days (five, really – I don’t count flying days) that we came exhausted and glad to have three days to recover before we head back to work.
Sacramento, Lincoln, North Lake Tahoe, Tahoe-Donner, Truckee, Tahoe City, South Lake Tahoe, Zephyr Cove, Lincoln, Old Sac, Fair Oaks, Sacramento again -with stops in Minnesota an Atlanta. Lots of miles, one tram ride up the mountains of Squaw valley, one birthday boat ride around Emerald Bay, a ridiculous amount of food, lots of walking, train museum, beaches and mountains, a tour of Todd’s childhood haunts, vegetarian burgers, roosters in the road, deer in the yard, one tattoo session, hanging out with old friends, time with Todd’s parents, 1,000 photos, intense heat and whole lot of fun. And somewhere in there I read a book and started another.
I have a day’s worth of photo processing/uploading ahead, news to catch up, unpacking to do…I hope to have most of the pictures up on flickr tonight and a recap of the vacation here. I think the only thing worse than forcing someone to look at vacation slides is asking people to read your blog about your vacation. But I will do it, anyhow.
Oh, we never did get to the State Fair. Eating deep fried White Castle burgers was not a good enough reason to brave the crowds and heat.
Stay tuned for pictures.
