I hope everyone had a safe and warm celebration last night. The Lord of the Manor and I stayed home, drank a very nice bottle of Merlot, watched a movie and went to bed early. At midnight I heard fire works signaling the beginning of a new year. And this morning we started it out with a brisk walk. It was very quiet out, I guess everyone is sleeping in and/or recovering from excess libations.I want to share these photos from Hope Valley and Lake Tahoe that we took on our trip. The beauty of snow covered mountains never ceases to amaze me. The first two are in the Hope Valley area.
This photo is of Lake Tahoe from the road to Emerald Bay near Inspiration Point. The road was closed to traffic so we started walking up, but a snow plow driver told us to get off the road, so this is as far as we made it.
