Have you ever experienced Reno-Tahoe? According to visitrenotahoe.com:

Autumn is a magical time in Reno Tahoe. The cooler temps are prime for hiking and biking through colorful aspen groves, and fewer crowds mean it's the perfect time to pack a picnic and head to your favorite Lake Tahoe beach.

The flights run Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday departing Pasco at 4:25pm arriving into Reno-Tahoe at 6 pm. Returning flights depart at 2:05 pm from Reno-Tahoe International Airport to arrive in Tri-Cities at 3:40 pm.

Special fares will be offered at $49 each way (if purchased 21 days ahead and by November 15th). What a deal! I'm going to have to check this out. I was just talking with a co-worker about Tahoe, and he was totally boasting about the destination. It's been a some time since my husband and I have been on vacation. Seems like this is the PERFECT time to check out Reno-Tahoe.
