Beating the Rain

A couple of Saturday's ago we decided to go on a day-long hiking trip in Lake Tahoe. So we put on our hiking boots, packed our lunches, & with Bella in tow set out on our adventure!

We don't go hiking too often so this sign definitely scared me a little bit right at the beginning...

Even though we set out fairly late in the afternoon we were still hoping to hike all the way to the top to see the beautiful waterfall and have a small picnic on the rocks. The views were amazing and we took tons of pictures.

There were rows of trees with different inscriptions {we wish we could have left our mark too but had no time to waste}

We probably got 3/4ths of the way there before realizing that the weather was swiftly changing from a warm sunny day to a dark cloudy sky. There were many large flat rocks by the water so we ended up having our picnic right there and just in time before it started to rain.

We ended up pretty much running down the mountain side to try to beat the rain, but by the time we got to the car we were all soaked anyways!

Poor Bella tried to tuck her head in the bag the whole way down, but even she couldn't hide from the rain!
