Trippy rock climbing over Lake Tahoe

High temperatures have made a big difference in snow levels, so we return to the small but scenic Trippy Rock to climb in the sun with great views of Lake Tahoe. Another friendly group shares ropes with us, and afterward we drive down to the shores of the lake. I’ll never forget the views I had of the enormous lake sparkling below me on the Pacific Crest Trail, but today is my first time on the shore. The water is a mysterious emerald green, and the air smells like mountains.
