So if you want to take a couple of days, cuz that's all you have I highly recommend staying here. On Friday and Saturday night the hotel has a band and food on the patio. If you get a room with a balcony you can sit on the balcony and listen to it. If you want to check it out here is the link:http://www.riverranchlodge.com/home
The other thing we wanted to do was do some hiking. Today we hiked into Antone Meadows. It is off of Hwy 28 in the Burton Creek State Park. The whole loop was 6.1 miles and we did it in 2 hours and 44 minutes which is pretty good for a couple of old people. Moderate climb with mostly soft paths but in a few places was a little rocky and uneven. When you get toward the end you can catch glimpses of the lake. Beautiful scenery, great day. If you like to do Tahoe and you like to hike, I highly recommend a book called Best Easy Day Hikes Lake Tahoe by Tracy Salcedo-Chourre and published by Falcon Guide.
After we were done hiking we were going to get a bite to eat in Tahoe City, but with the upcoming holiday weekend it was already busy. I Yelped restaurants in Truckee and this seafood restaurant popped up. Seafood in Truckee? Really? Oh my goodness!! Best seafood ever. Better than places in San Francisco. Fresh from all around the country. It is also a fish market if you want some fish for home. The restaurant itself has very limited sitting inside but today we could sit outside. I would order it and eat it in the car it was that good. I had the crab cakes with a salad and a side of fries (the fries were so good!) and Brent had swordfish kabobs with cold slaw and fries. Morgan's Lobster Shack & Fish Market. Five Star yum!!!
