Capisce Soooo good :) Great service!!!
178 Hwy 50, Zephyr Cove NV — (775) 580-7500
Lanza's Restaurant Big mistake. Bad environment, bad oily food, bad service. Dirty place, the restaurant is made of wood, when the waiter walks, the table shakes, they don't serve you and they trow food on the plate.
Burger Lounge The Camino burger is one of the most tantalizing burgers I've ever had! (And i have had a LOT of burgers.)
Brooks' Bar & Deck at Edgewood Tahoe The Summer Breeze salad is the best...but get the goat cheese on the side...unless you REALLY like goat cheese.

Snowy, Some Mud, Fallen Trees: Trailhead is just off the road. The gate is closed due to downed trees. Patches of snow as of 7/9, so hiking road is faster.

Snowy, Icy - Too much snow to even stay on the trail. The only reason I am able to stay on the right course is with my phone.

Snowy, Mostly Dry, Some Mud - I completed the whole loop on 7/11, but had to detour around some large snow patches, and in one place needed to crawl over a snow patch to gain the ridge to Mt. Judah. It was amazingly beautiful though and worth it, to see all the snow still left on some of the surrounding peaks.
