Lake Tahoe on the last days of 2014

I love AirBnb.

Shuttle busses take a long time. Be prepared.
I couldn’t believe I was at a music festival in the snow. Then again, it’s called SnowGlobe.

The main stage had all of the headliners. Music cut-off was at 10:00pm.

From our AirBnb, the balcony scene had gone from dry night to bright white.

Sierra Tent had Classixx perform a DJ set. My friend Brenna holds an Odesza sign that someone left behind.
We had to wait for the snowplow to clear and salt the roads before we could even leave the cabin.

Trees in the snow don’t catch on fire.
Glowing signage at the exit. Who knows if I’ll ever see this sign again.
