Day 2 TRT – Fine Views and Forest

 Morning  View of Lake Tahoe

Hiker trash for life. Once you are hiker trash you’re always hiker trash. That’s just the way it is.  ~Carl Miller 

East Ridge to Tunnel Creek Road – 22.3 miles

The Tahoe Rim Trail has been a surprise with a clean forest, few people, open views, and beauty around each corner. 

However, the biggest treat is talking trail as we hike along. These ladies have thousands of miles under foot. Fun to hear PCT this, CDT that, AT, GET, GDT… hikers, gear, and future hikes. So cool to be part of the conversation. 

It is cold and windy tonight and there is a good chance of raIn tomorrow. It will be interesting once again.

    What beautiful pictures! The view is fantastic! What a joy to be out hiking with friends sharing such magnificent scenery.

  2. Those puffy clouds and blue sky sure makes for great shots with the amazing views. I can almost feel the fresh air!

  3. I just love the photos! The lake and sky are so blue! What a magnificent trail.

  4. I like that shot of Wired in her element. She often writes of it but never seen a photo to show her in action. Good shot!!

  5. So wierd to think you are so close to my house and yet so far away !!! I am thinking of you all . Marlette Lake is a nice gem along the east side of the TRT . My favorite part is coming soon … From Tahoe meadows to Brockway … Views , views and more views ! Enjoy !
    Sorry I couldn’t rendezvous with you
