15. Always Learning

20130806-154443.jpgWe’ve been vacationing in Lake Tahoe before we start the next school year. Yesterday, we took a gondola ride up Heavenly Mountain and saw some spectacular views.

20130806-135609.jpgWe stopped mid-hike for a mini physics lesson. We watched the waves travel in the boundary rope, noting that they were taller when we tugged harder and that they quickly flattened out as they traveled back and forth between the poles.

20130806-154552.jpgI learned something, too. I’ve been coming to Tahoe every winter since I was a kid, and we all know what a great ski destination it is. But this is my first summer visit. FYI: summer is way better!
