I’ve been learning so much here in Reno at the Maynard Institute fellowship that a trip to the clear blue water of Lake Tahoe was exactly what was needed to relax.
On Saturday, the group headed to over the pass to Lake Tahoe. On the way we stopped at a park that had beautiful views of Reno. It was a bit hazy in the morning, but still a relaxing view.
We then headed up into the Sierra Nevada Mountains and the temperature began to drop. It was winter coat weather at 8,000 feet. Once we started heading down we caught our first glance of Lake Tahoe.
At 1,645 feet deep, Lake Tahoe is the third deepest lake in North America. It measures about 22 miles long and 12 miles wide.
Along the shore, were boulders that were formed over the last 10 million years. Active volcanoes, fault lines and glaciers chiseled the granite into boulders.
After a relaxing time of looking out over the lake and listening to the water splash against the boulders, the group headed to lunch.
I will highly recommend a place called Jake’s on the Lake in Tahoe. It’s one of the more relaxing lunches I’ve had in a long time. The food was excellent, with a nice selection of fresh water fish and seafood, and the view overlooking the lake was special.
It was just the sort of trip the group attending the fellowship needed to decompress and relax a bit.
Back to learning tomorrow.
