Maddy Rides the Marlette flume trail.

Tahoe is one of the first places I visited when I moved to the US. The first impression of WOW hasn't faded one bit.

The water clarity is stunning, and there is so much more. Saturdays plan was to ride the famous flume trail.


We started the trail after riding the shuttle up to Spooner lake from flumetrailtahoe.com . Max provides an excellent and friendly service there.

From Spooner there is about a 2.5 Mile climb ~1000ft to the saddle, and back down to Marlette Lake.  

I don't think there is an ugly lake in the vicinity of Tahoe... 

Even in the hail and sleet it was still beautiful.


The old log flume started right here.

And this is where the trail gets absolutely spectacular.

There might be better views of the lake :)

The trail itself is surprisingly smooth, and almost perfectly flat.

The rock formations are dramatic too.

The view does not get old.


Moss in the trees.

Changing Aspen.

And just like that we were done and next to Tunnel Creek cafe with lots of yummy food.

Time to relax.
