If you are planning to hang with your mom at Lake Tahoe this Sunday, then you are already winning: Mom will be sure to get all the sunshine, fresh air, and bubbling champagne that she deserves. With a forecast for sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 60’s, this Sunday the 11th is looking good for showering Mom with lots of love and affection.
Take Mom to Emerald Bay for a jaunt on the Rubicon Trail. Make the hike as long or as short as you like—killer views start as soon as you park your car. Bear in mind that there is a $10.00 fee to park in the Vikingsholm lot. On the trail you can view Lake Tahoe’s only island, Fannette Island, which is home to the Scandinavian style “Tea House.” May is a great time to visit this stunning park, since it gets crowded later in the summer months.
