Lakes Basin Trip

       A couple of weekends ago Jon and I wanted to get out of the house and do something. You can only spend so many hours at the beach with a newborn, bike rides aren't an option at the moment, and most of our favorite trails nearby aren't doable with a munchkin. So we packed up the boys and headed out on a drive. We decided to head north to the Lakes Basin area. The Lakes Basin is located about 1.5 hours from us, and is composed of lots of high sierra lakes (hence the name) connected by small roads and trails. We had planned on camping there this past Memorial Day Weekend, but those plans were foiled due to late snowfall.
       We drove the hour and a half, with one pit stop for feeding Nolan and picking up picnic goods. Then made our way to a trail head area so that we could set out on foot. We found a great little 2 mile trail that took us out to a gorgeous lake. It was  the perfect mini-getaway for us.
Jon made the trek with Nolan snug in his carrier.

Pretty, no?

Hope that you had a great weekend.
Lots of love from Tahoe!
