Hiking Squaw at 8200'+

Travelzoo has an amazing 2-for-1 deal for the tram at Squaw ($39) so that's where we were today.

We were transported to High Camp (el. 8200') from where, after a picnic lunch, we ventured upwards.

Wildflowers lined our path. They were a welcomed addition to the breathtaking views.

We meandered over 5 miles delighting in all Squaw had to offer.
We concluded our mountain tour at the Olympic Museum. Squaw was home to the 1960 Winter Games so there is much history to learn.

We even saw a Yellow-bellied Marmot, the largest member of the ground hog family. Wild.
We ended the day in The Village at Squaw Valley on the patio of our favorite pub. What fun it was to discover/explore/experience something new.

The tram looks cool. 40$ is pricey for a hike though! Can you camp up there?
I love the flowers. And the views!
Definitely worthy of a toast afterwards!
