Overall Experience: Smile

Exploring Lake Tahoe area. First stop is Alibi Ale Works. Tour around Lake Tahoe continues with South Lake Brewing . Final stop on our tour is at Sidellis Lake Tahoe Brewery and Restaurant. Small micro brewery that's off rhe radar screen with amazingly good brews. See us in the mirror?

These two magpies were fussing at Mooch while he sat in his catio this morning. He enjoyed the show!

A rabbit walks in to a bar...and Robert wants to take it home. Virginia City Brewery & Taphouse.

We planned this stop as a one-nighter, maybe two, and now we’re going on our fourth night. We hiked in the hills today on Deadman’s Creek trail up to the gazebo, followed by a couple of mile beach walk along the lakeshore. All of this is in the park. Life is good!

On the road again. Saw this place and had to stop for breakfast before hitting the road. It was actually a post office at one time.

Local Flavor – Area Businesses We Enjoyed & Recommend
Stoneyhead Brewing Company, Reno, NV. As first-time visitors, we were offered a free sampling of all thirteen of their beers. Nice.
