View from Tashoo's Toy Cache

A Sunday excursion to Dog Valley to hit two geocaches. We expected no snow would be left from thel last storm that came through on Thanskgiving weekend, but there was snow in the woods and packed snow on the roads in the shade. We hit Tashoo’s Toy Cache first, a steep hike uphill in the snow with the payoff of a glorious view of Dog Valley and the Bald Mountains. Then we drove over to Dog Valley Campground and hunted down the Dog Valley cache–an easy 0.2 mile walk from the campground, but I needed M’s help to find the cache right where it was supposed to be, not even covered with snow.

There were lots of people out cutting Christmas Trees in the Tahoe National Forest, presumably with permits.
