While living in LA has its perks, life here frequently leaves me craving lush greenery, open space and fresh air. So when my boyfriend asked me to accompany him on a business trip to Lake Tahoe over the weekend, I jumped at the opportunity to get away from the city (and the overly dramatized ‘Carmageddon‘). Being that this was my first trip to Tahoe, I was thrilled that it was just as beautiful as I’d imagined. Our weekend was filled with the great outdoors, tasty eats, some eventful golf tournament work and just enough relaxation time to leave me feeling completely refreshed. Here are some of my favorite things from the weekend that I’m already missing.
Picturesque views and mountainous terrain.
Sparkling, clear, turquoise water.
Green pines juxtaposed against a clear blue sky… something that made me
a little homesick for Michigan.
The smell of fresh cut grass and stunning views on Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.
Some of the greatest sweet coconut prawns I’ve ever had… served with Thai chili aioli and horseradish dipping sauce from The Beacon Bar and Grill at historic Camp Richardson.
Hands down the best
dirty burger we’ve ever ordered… properly named “The Kitchen Sink” and served open face with chili, swiss, pepper jack, cheddar, sautéed onions, jalapeno, bacon, fried egg and avocado… with a side of garlic fries. YUM.
(Also from The Beacon Bar and Grill).
Scrumptious sweets from the Camp Richardson Coffee Shop.
