Lake Tahoe run

Incredible!
Beautiful!
Expansive views!
Dry!
Way above sea level!

Shelley and I were in Incline Village for her 20-year high school reunion (Incline High baby!) and since there was time to screw around and since packing running shoes and shorts is easier and cheaper than shipping a bicycle I hit the trails on foot.

Oh MAN are the trails nice up here… and by 'up' I mean right around 6,000'.

I started at the Ponderosa Ranch (where Bonanza was filmed) and headed up Tunnel Creek Rd. This is a stout climb that ascends for three miles at which point you get to about a million intersections and options. The Flume Trail had been recommended to me but I took a wrong turn. Luckily every turn is damn scenic up here so I just ran until I saw one hour and then turned around. Good times. Especially since I did not get lost.

Looking at my data below you can see how much I was dying until I turned around… on the way up I had to walk for a few seconds about every half mile! Luckily I took along plenty of fluids so actually finished with some drink left in my bottle.

I would go back here in a heartbeat. To run OR ride. Hell, I need to figure out a way to do both on the same trip. Here is a trail map of where I was.
