Summer in Tahoe

Took the dog on a run.
Took the dog on a run.

With all the rain that came through last week, it was a little depressing.  We live in Tahoe, with over 300 days of sunshine a year, and 10 days in a row of rain was really pushing it.  But when the sun did finally come out, it was heavenly.  The forest was awake, and I got to take the dog on a run.  We started out thinking that we would just go a couple miles, just to dust off the cob-webs.  But 8.5 miles later we were both blissfully spent and back at the car.  It was like the forest was too pretty to stop running.  I know that sounds a little like Forest Gump, but it was true, and everyone that we stopped to chat with had the same thought.
