♥ The best of both worlds

Monday, January 30, 2012

When I lived in San Francisco, the Swede & I would try to get up to Lake Tahoe with friends as often as we could to go Snowboarding at Squaw Valley.  The only problem was it was a 4 hour drive which often took longer with all the traffic.  Since moving to LA, I've been able to make it up to Big Bear Mountain a couple times already, one of which we did last weekend.  It's conveniently only an hour & 45 min. drive and located right above Lake Arrowhead.  

There's not too many cities where you can surf in the morning and be snowboarding nearby before noon. : )
After a weekend in the snow, I couldn't have asked for better weather this past Saturday & Sunday.  It was almost 80 degrees all weekend so we rode our bikes to Venice beach and had lunch and drinks at a German beer garden. 
I'm falling in love with LA more and more each day.

Dang. You and the Swede are one photogenic couple.
I love Lake Tahoe. So glad it's only a car trip away.

You sure have the best of the both worlds! I wish we could easily escape somewhere warm in the middle of the winter, not having to fly. California's calls keep getting louder and louder each year... X
