Our Top Adventure Locations Visited in the Sierra in 2015

Sierra Mountains 2015 –  What a great year of exploring in the Sierra. The Low 2015 snow pack gave us access to greater areas earlier and Sierra REC had a blast exploring new areas and sharing our adventures.  As we sit and look into 2016 and the various places we look forward to seeing for the first time, here is an end of the year review of the top 16 places we explored in 2015!

1) Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe Rim Trail

Early Access to the Tahoe Rim trail in 2015 gave us great Views of Lake Tahoe
