Summertime and the fun is happening!   Leave a comment

ImageIt’s just about to get busy up here. So while we all have thoroughly enjoyed the last few weeks of local’s summer, we also look forward to playing with the crowds and experiencing the activities that happen in the mountains only in the sum…sum…summertime. Here are a few upcoming activities that are well worth taking a look at:

 

Alpenglow Outdoor Festival, June 22-30th.

A nine day festival of free outdoor recreation events. You can do some yoga on the lake, take a hike with inspiring athletes, learn how to climb, get tips from the experts including nutritionists and Western States 100 competitors, or take a wildflower or birding hike. Oh, and there are lots of demos and freebies to take advantage of.  For a complete schedule go to www.alpenglowsports.com

 

Truckee Thursdays-Every Thursday throughout the summer

Downtown Truckee becomes party central from 5-9 pm every Thursday. It’s a street fair, farmers market, and live music all combined, but it’s really just an excuse for a lot of locals and tourists alike to get together and have some fun.

 

 

Commons Beach Summer Concert Series. All summer long.

It’s a little thing, but your summer can be beautifully encapsulated on a Sunday afternoon in Tahoe City. Get there about 2 pm to launch your kayak onto Tahoe’s pristine deep blue waters. Paddle around for an hour or so, enjoying the sunshine, then find your way back to the Commons Beach. Float about 20 feet offshore and watch the band play and the crowd dance at Tahoe City’s Summer concert series.  Yep, that will do. But if you get hungry you can come back on Thursday’s for the Farmers Market. Catch it over at Tahoe Lake School…my alma mater, for July and August, and then it returns to the Commons Beach at the end of August.

 

Backpack and yoga.  July 9-11th

Once the busy 4th of July is past, you might be looking for a relaxing way to spend a few days. Join Tahoe Yoga Institute instructor Jenna Minnes and long time hiking guide Tim Hauserman for a backpack trip to the shores of a beautiful mountain lake. Once you get there you will have three days to swim, practice yoga, learn about the trees, and relax. For information go to: http://trailswithin.com/nurture-your-nature/
