TAHOE — There’s a lake right in your backyard.
It’s not exactly a tourist attraction.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of reasons to visit Lake Tahoe.
It’s a natural wonderland of waterfalls, lakes and other water-related activities, including the infamous Lake Tahoes Big Dig, a series of rock formations that have seen many visitors die and many other drownings.
Lake Tahoe’s natural beauty is a reason why locals flock to the resort each year to escape the heat.
The area is also known for being the perfect place to get some of the world’s best kayaking.
A recent trip to Lake Tahos Big Dig brought us to the lake on a trip we’d been planning for about a year.
In our first year in Tahoe, we got there on the morning of a week-long weekend, and it was an adventure to say the least.
We kayaked, rafted, climbed rock formations and enjoyed the views.
Our friend was not averse to it.
She loved the idea of kayaking in the cold and the snow, and had some very specific tips on how to get there.
As we were going from lake to lake, we took some pictures to share on Instagram.
One day, we were waiting for a cab to take us to Lake Mead, the world-famous water park.
At the lake, the cab driver offered to let us borrow his boat and go for an afternoon kayaking trip.
I thought it would be fun, so we decided to give it a try.
After a quick paddle through the snow and the wind, we headed towards the lake.
Soon after we landed, we saw some people paddling towards us.
They were excited to be out on the water.
That was when we knew we were in for an adventure.
We paddled out into the lake and headed towards a big boulder on the shore.
There were a lot more people there than we expected, but we weren’t expecting the excitement we got from the many people in the water at the same time.
This was the start of a wonderful trip.
As the paddling slowed, we began to see people jumping up and down on the boulders.
By the time we got back to the cab, they had caught our attention, and we were on our way again.
Just like that, we had a perfect paddle and set out for Lake Mead.
While this was happening, the lake water temperature was in the low 60s, and the temperature was rising.
For a brief time, the water was freezing cold.
And that’s when the fun really started.
All of a sudden, I saw a white, floating, floating thing.
What it looked like was a big fish, with a head and a tail.
Its body was just a little too big for its body.
When we got close to the big fish in the lake the water began to freeze and the water started to come into contact with the fish.
My first thought was to just grab the fish and take it to shore.
But the bigger fish would probably jump on me and make me jump off.
So, we grabbed a small piece of the fish that was floating on the lake’s surface, and I took it with me.
Once we got it to the shore, we tried to grab the bigger, heavier fish.
But it was too heavy for me to get to.
It was really fun.
We ended up just hanging around and watching it.
Then it started to swim away.
It did not slow down.
Now it was time to paddle back.
We had to paddle through some snow and ice, and this time it was freezing and it wasn’t a good time to be in the ice.
So we paddled back through the ice to the kayak and started paddling again.
By now, the ice was about 3 to 4 feet deep.
Then, we noticed a large rock on the ground and it seemed to be moving.
We decided to try and grab it.
At this point, we couldn’t move it because we were paddling and we could barely hold the fish in our hands.
So we started to feel pretty bad about trying to grab it, but I thought, it’s worth it to get this big fish.
It wasn’t too hard to grab this big one.
It seemed to have a head.
We thought it was going to try to swim down.
But then, it did not do that.
Instead, it just started to jump up and go down the shore of the lake again.
It had jumped off the rocks in the snow.
With a big splash, it went right back up the rock.
It didn’t slow down or even stop moving.
It just disappeared into the water again.
