- Fri morning I rode Hole in the Ground with Metres... followed by an afternoon run chasing the boys around the lake. Then went on a paddle with the boys, where they collected all kinds of "lake weed". And finally we cruised down to Truckee to ride the bike park... where I forgot my shoes and rode in my sandals... and ate it quite hard.
|watch out for this dude...|
|On our way down to the lake... to paddle!|
|Then the kiddos hopped in the hot tub.|
|So they could be all clean to hit up the Truckee Bike Park (the best bike park!)|
|I forgot my shoes...|
|Nikko was worries he wasn't gonna be tall enough to ride...|
|Sushi! In Truckee!|
Later that night Marian came up with her kiddos in tow. And the next morning we had planned a fun hike on the summit. There are endless hikes/trails on the summit... it's such an amazing spot. Here are some links about the catfish ponds.
|We thought these were eggs at first. Turns out they are part of a plant.|
|Check out the dragon! You know you are in the right spot if you see this.|
|our viewing platform for the catfish. After about 10 min of tossing bread into the lake, we were about to give up.|
|Then they all showed up!|
|Then we hiked to a peak and found a swing on the way!|
|while I went on a run, the kiddos (and Kimbo) watched some college football|
|Then Kimbo rode down to the lake to go paddle!|
|The last paddle of the season... was the best. We saw otters! Crazy right? I thought so...|
Sunday morning I went on a short run, and we decided to go down the hill to do a hike at the Black Hole of the Calcutta as it was forecast to be 20 deg warmer down there vs the summit.
|Some art on my run...|
|Stopped at a nice brewery in Auburn!|
