Mt. Tallac by the Full Moon

At 4:30 am, Sunday, September 30th, I met up with my friends Travis and Marissa to hike Mt. Tallac via the full moon. It was reminiscent of ski season, when I often meet friends at 5 am to ski before the work day begins. As we set out on the trail, we rarely needed our headlamps; the light of the moon was enough to illuminate our way.

We neared the summit just as the sun was rising over the mountains east of Lake Tahoe.

Beautiful view of the lake and Fallen Leaf Lake.

Full moon adventures always seem to deliver!
