Vanilla. Take a big breath when you step into the woods and that’s what you’ll smell. That great, vanilla piney smell that only happens when the temperature reaches a certain level and the sun hits the pine trees, aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh. . .It’s an aphrodisiac. It’s also a signal to de-tox, de-stress, de-tach, and relax. You’re in Tahoe, what could possibly be better? While there is a plethora of activities available, sailing, waterskiing, zip-lining, golfing, shopping, outdoor concerts, etc., etc, your choices will become clearer after a day on the beach, starring at the lake. That in itself is an activity, although you could call it meditating if you feel the need to define it.
There is no better place to be in the summer than in Tahoe. The skies are clear blue, with a few puffy white clouds, there’s usually a soft breeze. The lake reflects the sky so the blue becomes three dimensional. The temperature is perfect, usually about 80 degrees, and the air feels soft. It’s heaven on earth.
