fall days make for great hiking and mount tallac has always been one of my favorite destinations any time of year. just the approach by car around fallen leaf lake is enough to get the juices flowing
neither ashley nor nacho had ever been, so it would be fun to head up with them on their first time.
nacho was stoked
ashley, not so much
that’s ok though. nacho and i were still happy to drag her along
nacho is not a fan of gymnastics. they must be stopped
ashley is a fan though. hup!! me? i just like to rap, yo!
after cathedral lake we opted for some scrambling. we couldn’t get nacho past the crux so there were some tense moments for ashley getting him back down
they survived though. wet doggy kisses for everyone
nacho. so stoked to be almost there.
great views everywhere
ashley and nacho pose in front of tahoe, emerald bay, cascade lake, and a unicorn
ashley peers down the cross
on the peak overlooking gilmore lake and desolation
proof that we actually made it
there was even a register! 😉
“i used to live right there”
two best friends soak in the views (and a sandwich)
one for cheetoing.com
and one for nacho
go gators, beat lsu today!!
this is where i teach ashley a thing or two about gymnastics
she’s a quick learner
then we ran back down the ugly pile of rocks
