Yesterday Joshua and I came home after spending five days at Convict Lake with the family for the annual family vacation.
The last time we were at Convict Lake was four years ago, right before we got engaged, and we stayed in a huge house with Joshua’s entire family. This time we stayed in a two bedroom cabin with his immediate family.
Our first full day we spent at the lake. We took a hike around the entire lake, which was about three miles. About halfway around the lake we took a break in a nice secluded beach area.
The next day we ventured to Mammoth Mountain where we rode the gondola to the top of the mountain.
The views were absolutely stunning!
The next day Joshua and I drove to Tahoe to visit my Uncle Steve and Aunt Patty for a couple of hours. On our way back to Convict Lake, a storm rolled in and we had the most spectacular lighting show all night long.
We had plenty of rain throughout the night and into the next morning.
Yesterday on our way home we stopped at Mono Cone for lunch and then briefly explored the salt flats at Mono Lake.
It was so nice to get away and relax in the mountains for a few days!
