The Epic Tahoe Countdown by Shane Jones

With school back in session and temperatures hovering in the high 70’s/low 80’s, now is the perfect time to get out and enjoy Lake Tahoe. If you didn’t make it over to the West Shore this summer, I’ve got the ideal day planned for you. Start off with an early morning breakfast at the Tahoe House. This family owned business is known for having the best coffee on the lake, offering local Alpen Sierra Coffee brewed to perfection in gourmet Swiss coffee machines. Their fresh European-style breads and pastries are baked fresh daily. Their cozy fireplace and couches invite you to relax and savor a great start to the day. After you’re fueled up, head to DL Bliss state park for an a breathtaking lakeshore hike on the Rubicon Trail. If you are feeling ambitious, you can follow Tahoe’s various shades of blue-turquoise water all the way to Emerald Bay and the historic Vikingsholm. The wildlife you may see along the way is truly stunning, below is a picture of a massive hawk I saw just last week while hiking with my wife. Don’t forget to pack a bathing suit to enjoy a refreshing dip in the lake at Calawee Cove Beach! It is beautiful, secluded, and uncrowded as it’s only available to park users. The cost of $5 per person to enjoy the state park is more than worth it. Be sure to go soon as the park closes on September 15th!

Wow! That is a pretty awesome run of mountains. Don’t forget the up to 5 days free at Verbier, Switzerland and Les 3 Vallees, France. Great excuse to take a holiday at some of the best ski areas on the planet over in the European Alps.

Enjoy the fall and get fired up for winter!
