MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: FEBRUARY 27–MARCH 5, 2017! (PART 2)
This is part 2, read part 1 here.

Starting the week in Vegas at the Neon Museum, ending the week in a snowstorm in Tahoe. A week of late work nights and early mornings that was worth it, saw friends from high school, built snow-people, overcame a mountain storm, and more.

Enjoy!

We made it to our friend’s mom’s house late on Friday night, so we basically set up all the beds and went to bed.

Reunion!

Untitled
Untitled
We knew the roads would be bad, so we decided to leave earlier than we intended to make sure we made our 9pm flight.

Untitled
Said our goodbyes and hit the road around 11am

Untitled
Untitled
Stopped to get lunch a little bakery

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Shared a sandwich and salad with Zeen

Snow chains time

Untitled
Then it got bad.

Untitled
Roads closed. We had to turn around several time. Major accidents caused more closures. People were just freaking out in this storm and everybody trying to leave the mountain was stuck.

Untitled
One 3 mile stretch took us 7 hours to cross. That’s not an exaggeration.

Untitled
At the time, we had a crossword, we had snacks, we were just having fun and talking with each other.

Untitled
But it was getting dark. Even though we had given ourselves 10 hours to get back from Tahoe…we knew we wouldn’t make the flight. So we had to call and cancel and rebook for the morning.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
We finally got through that pass that took 7 hours to conquer and had to PEE really badly. The first thing we saw?

Untitled
Unfortunately this was MANY people’s idea

Untitled
40 minute bathroom line, but it was our only option before continuing down the mountain

Untitled
Finally made it off the mountain around 9pm and stopped for In N Out

Untitled
And around midnight we were back to Rachel’s apartment. Thankfully Rachel had us another night…but damn. 11 hours. Shoutout to Stu and Rachel who took turns driving throughout that madness.

Much love friends.
