    Do this when you go to Emerald Bay--a good day's trip. The falls are gorgeous and are fairly close to the road. Continuing the hike past the falls, you will find alpine lakes.

    This is a relatively easy hike, but it takes you right down near the bay. The area is full of wildlife, and the Vikingsholm building is beautiful. It was scenic and very peaceful, especially by the water.

    I finally made it up to the Heavenly Resort earlier this year, but too bad it was towards the end of the snow season. I'm not an expert snowboarding so I stuck to the green and a few of the blue runs to challenge myself. They have a lot of different runs here and saw some very challenging black runs ...
