Carson City (the capital of where?) and one of the most beautiful places on earth.

This blog post is about Carson City, our next stop, as well as a lake that we visited nearby called Lake Tahoe. First, about Carson City.

Downtown Carson City

Carson City is the capital of, oh, wait, I’ll keep you guessing. Anyway, it was a bit too small for our likings, and a few too many casinos. It was really pretty though, and we had a good time. We stopped to fix something that would help us with Wi-Fi, and we went up the mountains to Lake Tahoe. After, we came back and had dinner at the Olive Garden which got the stamp of kid approval. Then we slept at a hotel.

This is a neighborhood in Carson City.

Lake Tahoe was an awesome lake. We climbed rocks and touched the water. Cocoa rolled around in the snow. We were all in t-shirts (besides mom, but she’s never been in a t-shirt) and sweating at the end of the climb. We kept our eyes open, but there was no sign of Tahoe Tessie today! We all had fun, though we still didn’t want to live here because it was a bit too small. It was really pretty and we all enjoyed it.

Pretty, huh?

We read that wild horses live in the mountains around Carson City but sadly, we didn’t see any this time. On our way out of town we passed several more lakes and stopped at Mono Lake for a lunch break. The islands and some of the nearby mountains are the remains of volcanoes! There were a few snowbanks nearby and we enjoyed playing in them.

Mono Lake. You can see parts of the snow also.

If you’re looking for small town living surrounded by beautiful scenery and quick access to one of the most beautiful spots on earth, Carson City might be for you. For us, we decided it is a little too small. Until next time, goodbye.

P.S. The state was Nevada.

Topaz Lake, another nearby lake.
The rounded mountains in the distance are old volcanoes!
