after driving all through the night we arrived at donner lake about 6pm. it was still pretty light and we were able to find a pretty cool camp spot, and put up our tent. we had dinner at taco jalisco in truckee [best mexican restaurant ever!!]... with our full bellies and still a bit more day light left we headed off to lake tahoe.
we stopped several times along the way to take some pictures and by the time we got to the lake it was starting to get a bit dark. i don't have any pictures, but me and the boys took a little swim that night. it was pretty creepy swimming in dark cold water, but very refreshing!
