We are fortunate enough to co-own a vacation home in Truckee, where we love to spend our summer vacation every year. For the last two summers, we extended our usual two week vacation, to three weeks. Three weeks truly allows you to unwind and forget about work and all the chores awaiting you at home, and allows you to have a real vacation. I look forward to summer in Truckee every year.
Here are some scenes from our summer vacation....
Would you believe there was still snow in July? Crazy!
Yet, at the same time there was signs of summer.
My husband took these photos of the poppies. Aren't they gorgeous?
There was tubing down the Truckee River.
My shadow in the Truckee River. I wish I had legs this long!
We explored the train tunnels above Donner Lake. One of our favorites places to take new visitors.
There's an opening in the tunnel where you are awarded with a breathtaking view of Donner Lake.
We also hiked a little. Notice the sign. Leave it to my husband to want to still hike.
I was relieved when the trails were no where near as dangerous as the sign led us to believe.
The falls were amazing. Lots of snow runoff!
And the scenery, beautiful.
And I couldn't ask for better company!
Did you go anywhere fun this summer or have any fun vacations planned?
