This past weekend, the hubby and I headed to Bullard’s Bar, which is an alpine lake Northwest of Reno, where we camped with my family and enjoyed excellent mountain biking and boating.
Bullard’s Bar is an excellent example of the numerous alpine lakes in the Sierras. The water was turquoise and extremely pure (I swallowed some accidentally), and the temperatures of both the air and the water were perfect – not too hot and not too cold.
The nicest thing about alpine lakes is that many of them have great mountain biking or hiking in the same vicinity. I took advantage of the extensive trail system around Bullard’s Bar, and biked on the single track that gives some breathtaking views of the lake.
Here is a pic of my hubby, as he prepares to cool off in the lake.
