Tahoe and Lassen  
It's been a crazy weekend. Traveling to Tahoe and Lassen National Park meant new places added to my list of travel destinations in the US, but spending so much time on the road meant that both places weren't satisfactorily experienced. There's always next time. However, this was my very first trip to an active volcanic area and I'm intrigued by Lassen National Park. The park still has a lot of snow and the main road through the park is closed, so maybe a trip in the summer is a must-do. Anyway, enough words, time for the pictures.

Tahoe is real blue! And that's why it is sooooo popular (of course, it could also be because half of it is in Nevada and there are casinos on the border ;-)
