california adventure-shower lake

This past weekend, R and I traveled east towards Tahoe for an overnight backpacking trip.  It was a great and challenging 8 mile trail.  At the end, was this gorgeous little lake called Shower Lake.  The Tahoe area is full of hidden little lakes way up in the mountains and this was a perfect retreat from the city grind.

Unfortunately, it was a little to chilly to go swimming (still a ton of snowmelt!), but we enjoyed it nonetheless.  I also had the chance to do a long run further along the PCT trail, which was an amazing break from all the marathon training on the roads!
