Waterfalls and Wine...

Just another fabulous day in Lake Tahoe!

Upon Bob and Jenny's suggestion, eight of us hiked to have lunch at the base of a waterfall. We were all totally game.
 At times, it was a rather precarious hike but so worth it.
Upper Truckee Falls (20 ft.) is located along the Upper Truckee River. We started off hiking on the historic Hawley Grade National Recreation Trail in Meyers. After a very short distance, the main trail turned uphill to the right but we took the spur trail on the left, which led to the Upper Truckee River and this amazing, powerful waterfall.

 This location is now on our list of "best picnic spots".

After cleaning up a bit, the eight of us met for the very last Sunday Sippers at Apr├Ęs Wine Company, Tahoe’s fantastic wine bar, bistro and fine wines/gift shop. We had been meaning to go here, since moving to Tahoe, and maybe if we had, this would not be the last of the Sippers.
 Pete's hat says it all (Wineaux).
Drinking good wine with good food in good company
is one of life’s most civilized pleasures.
