A few weeks ago I was invited to visit North Lake Tahoe as part of a Kred Rewards program (read more about what Kred is here). It had been nearly fifteen years since I had been to the Lake Tahoe area, and even then, it was only to South Lake Tahoe.
What a mistake that was.
Only a few hours away from the San Francisco Bay Area (for me it is 3 depending on traffic) is a magical place. A true escape. I was instantly transported back to my winters in France and Switzerland at the foot of the Jura mountains and just a stone’s throw from the Alps.
Snow makes everything beautiful and there has been plenty this year. But even without snow there are so many things to do both indoors and out you’ll find plenty of reasons to keep coming back throughout the year.
It reminded me of a very important lesson, you don’t have to travel very far at all to be in a whole other world and to escape your daily life and routine.
How about you? Do you have a magical spot in your backyard?
P.S. North Lake Tahoe is hosting a photo contest in January. You can win lift tickets, a new winner each week!
