Echo Lakes Snowshoeing
On February 21, 2016, a group of us drove past Lake Tahoe to Echo Summit.
The destination was Echo Lakes.
Andy and Lee supervise as people put on their snowshoes.
Therisa poses with the buried truck.
Ya think? Gloria poses with the road sign.
Heading down the trail.
I pose by a huge snow bank.
Therisa also poses by the snow bank.
A view of Lake Tahoe from the trail
Another Lake Tahoe view past a snowy roof
Can you do hydroelectric in the snow?
Lee and Therisa making progress on the trail
Looking down on the Echo Lake boat dock
A closer look
I approach the dam where the others are waiting.
L to R: Gloria, Therisa, Jim, Courtney, Andy, Cynthia, Donna and Lee
Same people, Echo Lake in the background

Let's go across it.
Lee takes a selfie
Courtney does too
Everybody is at it!
Now they are paying attention
A view of the "shore".
Cynthia and Lee make a heart
Cynthia is done, but Lee isn't
I added the arrow through it
Lee decides to make hill/snow art
There he goes!
It is steeper than he thought
Is this good?
I tell him where to turn
And...it's another heart!
A real beauty
Being out in the middle was a little spooky
A lost snowshoe
The trail is really a road in the summer.
Back at the truck, Andy shares beer with everyone.
And burgers too
Hangin' out. wnere's the hackeysack?
Gloria, Andy and Therisa
A boulder fell onto the highway the night before
It came from here.
NDOT will try to break it up to remove it.
Or Therisa can push it out of the way.
Or I can lift it and toss it away.
It was a gorgeous day to be outside.
