|I can't remember the hole this was, but this was our view from the tee box down to the green. Par 3 and we all hit the green - YEAH|

Sunday (8-15-10) was all about the Tahoe Flume trail. What a beautiful trail. I had never been up there, so I had no idea what to expect.
I met up at 7a with Susan Booher in EDH. We headed up 50 and made great time. We ended up at the Spooner trailhead at just about 9a. Pam was there waiting along with a few other FTRs. As we all got ready, more awesome FTRs showed up. We ended with a nice size group.

We took off and started with a nice downhill decent, however, that was short lived and we proceeded to hike uphill for 4.5 miles until we hit Marlette Lake. This lake is absolutely gorgeous. We hung out there for a bit. Chatting and snacking. Pam also decided to give our newest gadget a try - the Steripen. It works great, because it's been a week and we're still alive - yeah.
As we started off again, I noticed a few guys out in the water in float tubes fishing. So asked if they had had any luck. One guy said he had caught too many to count. Now I know all about fish stories, I'm married to a fisherman. So asked him if he was serious and he said he was. (The truly neat thing about this is that the only way to the lake is to hike or bike. They hiked in their float tubes on their bikes using a baby trailer to hold all their gear). So as we continued on, sure enough you could see the fish in the water. Huge trout. Beautiful.
And of course all of the beautiful wildflowers.
It was a beautiful day for an awesome hike/run.
And as usual, here are my beautiful toes after the run. Aren't they gorgeous? They sure do tell a story.
Til next time, stay dirty!
