A Winter Wonderland for Thanksgiving

It was a totally different world than anything I was used to.  We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Truckee, California.  We arrived in a blizzard & left in the snowfall. You know it really is a big deal when the locals are telling you that even they were not prepared for this kind of weather. The area is unbelievably gorgeous & pictures don't do it justice, but here are a few.

Picture perfect
25 miles around Lake Tahoe & up to the top of Mt. Watson (8,200 ft)

The clouds filling the valley

The 1st bloody Mary of the trip (running joke in our family)

A true Winter Wonderland
