Heading up to the Mountains

Going up to Tahoe this morning.  Plan to spend the night at Stateline before coming back late tomorrow afternoon.  Its been a long time since I've been to Tahoe...over twenty years.  In my younger days, I went skiing often at the various resorts in the Lake Tahoe area and had a particular liking for Heavenly Valley.  It also helped that my older brother owned a cabin there, but we always chose to stay near the Casinos for the great buffets.  

Since then, the area has changed tremendously as has my body.  My aged knees and ankles are unlikely to be able to take the pounding of a day of skiing and I've never been on a snowboard.  So this trip is merely a sight-seeing trip and to play a bit with the abundant new snow.  Will be staying at one of the Casinos and hopefully check out their buffets and maybe see a show.

No snow is predicted for the next couple of days so the drive should be OK, but I do have a 4WD vehicle just in case.  The webcam above shows clear skies and snow capped mountains!

Hopefully some pictures when I get back.
