As you’re driving on Highway 50 toward South Lake Tahoe, just before you reach Echo Summit, take a look up to your left (way up!) and notice the breath taking sight of Horsetail Falls.
Starting out early in the day with good friends, we arrived when the parking lot was nearly empty, and set out for a day of laughter, adventure, exercise, and enormous doses of the healing only Mother Nature provides.
The hike is a mix of lovely wooded trails and wide open granite rocks, all along refreshing pools, small waterfalls and streams.
Don’t forget to stop every once in awhile just to soak up the stunning views in all directions.
The majority of the hike is not well marked and we found ourselves in search of the trail a number of times. Also, be prepared to do a bit of rock climbing rather than hiking during some parts of the hike.
Ahh, there’s a cairn. We’re on the right path.Be sure to notice all the love notes from nature along the way!Everywhere!
Without fail, spending time in nature is consistently the restorative tonic that fills up my soul! Where do you go when you need to refuel?
