I'm in Lake Tahoe right now with some pals and it is
Its my first time in the wild state of CA and I will say I love it. I flailed around the ski slopes yesterday and managed to hit a few black diamonds - not gracefully - but it felt sort of great taking a risk.
I have about 1 gajillion photos waiting for editing back in VA - but for now I'm going to soak up this place.
Happy Early New Year!
