Hiking Lake Tahoe // Dardanelles Lake Trail

If you didn't know, I'm lucky to call Lake Tahoe home. The adventures are endless. Last week the hubby and I celebrated anniversary number three! YAY us! In stead of a fancy dinner to celebrate the we spent the day outside. We opted to leave Emerson with the nanny, but don't worry she'll be hiking with us in no time.

We've hiked to round lake via big meadow in the past, but never to Dardanelles Lake. 

The hike itself is pretty easy,  however I think it's listed as intermediate. We started from the Big Meadow trailhead. Of course, there's a big meadow. If you timed the hike just right in July the wildflowers would be in full bloom.

Roxy loves running free and playing stick.


After a few hours we finally made it to Dardanelles Lake!


We enjoyed sandwiches from Lira's Market (located in Meyers) and soaked in the views.


Our attempt at an usie... clearly we need to work on it. We were definitely missing our baby girl, but with the smoke haze were happy with our decision to leave her behind.


At only 8 miles roundtrip, Dardnelles Lake makes a great day hike. Don't forget to pack plenty of water, snacks and sunscreen.
