It was the first long weekend of new year and our friend Saurabh suggested that we go for some snow-shoeing and photography trip. We joined him and his really nice friend Marichu for the trip. Although the trip hardly went as planned, we ended up covering lot of interesting places. We reached Truckee, CA and enjoyed some photography at the Lake Donner. Being all photographers, this was a perfect setting for spending some time for some productive landscape photography and nobody got bored :). Next was Frenchman Lake. The road to Frenchman lake also had some breathtaking views and in one spot, we felt as we are entering Narnia. Frenchman Lake was at its glory at the time of sunset. Till then, we spent all our time fooling around the frozen lake. The evening was splendid with the canvas decorated with plethora of colors. We spent the night in Reno and the next day was Pyramid Lake. The lake is in a semi-desert place and the fact that we missed the sun-rise did not help us much for getting good pictures. We decided to head home and on our way back we spent some time in Truckee again doing some snow-shoeing. Overall it was a great trip only made awesome by the nice company we had.
