Judy and I headed up to Tahoe this weekend for some bouldering and mountain biking. Our plan was to boulder at the Grouse Slabs on Saturday and then ride the Emigrant Trail on Sunday. Unfortunately, we got kind of a late start to Tahoe on Saturday and then spent a bit too much time trying to find the Grouse Slabs boulders. As a result, we were only able to boulder for a few hours and the lone pic above is the only shot of actual climbing that I managed to get.
After an evening at the Donner Memorial State Park campground, we headed for the Emigrant Trail the next day. Everything we read indicated that this was a really fun trail consisting almost entirely of rolling singletrack. We were definitely not disappointed and were in fact surprised at how few people we ran into.
Although I had hoped to get more bouldering in, it was nevertheless a fun weekend trip and hopefully decent preparation for our upcoming trip to Joe’s Valley and Moab. Here’s a few pics.
