What happens when the Sun goes down

6 Sep

Earlier in the week, I talked about the amazing night time adventure I had with Emily and Matt up to the top of Watson Peak in North Lake Tahoe to watch the sun drop and the moon come up.  I snapped a bunch of photos and here they are!

This was the moon on my drive up to Tahoe, the night before our ATV adventures.

Our awesome driver, Matt!

The sun slowly dropping.

Huge tree uprooted!

Beautiful.

I love all the shadows.

Matt climbing some boulders on the ATV.

Watson Peak.

I love these two!

Sun flare.

The sun was almost all the way down which left this gorgeous pink afterglow.

The moon slowly started creeping up.

You got the whole moon in your hand.

Lights started sparkling on all around the lake.  It was gorgeous.

Did everyone else catch the full moon last week?  Where did you see it?

Tahoe is the best

OK, here are the last of my photos from last weekend.  Onto a new weekend we go!  Happy Friday 🙂

Watson Lake laps!

Getting wild.

Donuts on the Phazer.  This thing is awesome.

Custom paint job.

Taking turns making hot laps on the Phazer.

Gorgeous Day.

We were on top of a lke that was slowly melting.  Will a real winter hit us this year?  Or are we just in an off season because last year was SO good?

Blue skies all weekend long.

Matt and Clark having a moment.

Me and B having a moment HAHA!

One of my favorite Mexican eateries on the North Shore, El Sancho!  Not only is it delicious but the views are pretty great, too.

Bus stop.

The moon started filling up and it was gorgeous.

Sunset driving home.

I think I love sunsets so much because they remind me to reflect on the things that I’ve accomplished in that day.  Did I do something fun?  Did I accomplish anything I’d wanted to?  Was it the best day I could have made it given the circumstances?  And they are simply beautiful.

I can’t wait to get back there.  It’s a place that can have all the snow in the world or none at all and I’ll just love it no matter what.  I didn’t get on my snowboard at all but maybe next time.  I had so much fun snowmobiling with Emily and Matt and was sore for days.  Like sore to sit down even.  It was awesome and I can’t wait to do it again.  Our next reunion will be for a Monstor Truck show coming up which I’ve ALWAYS wanted to go to.  They just seem so American, how can you pass up a chance to see these machines in person?  I won’t forget ear plugs though.  I hear those are essentials!

Have a great weekend!
