The High Camp Experience is also an option. This experience will allow you to enjoy breath-taking views whether you choose to go on scenic strolls, hikes, or mountain sports.

Geocaching is another popular option. This is where little prizes are hidden throughout the area, and you use GPS coordinates to locate them. Up in Squaw Valley, there are 10 caches that are hidden up in the peaks. This will involve some hiking, and could involve moderate to more advanced hiking skills. You can keep track of your geocaching finds with a passport, that can lead to discounts at the retail shop.

Beauty Blogger Uses Wen By CHaz

I have always been a huge fan of Bustle. Bustle is a women’s lifestyle magazine dedicated to women who need to be inspired or long to be inspired and for women who dream big. It was created as a women’s only outlet for women across the spectrum of the internet. If there was ever a time that I needed advice the first place I would always run to first was Bustle because I trusted Bustle’s advice. I trusted that they really had their readers’ best interest at hand and that they would do everything possible to help me as a women.

Recently, Bustle helped me in a major way as I searched for a new sephora hair care product. Thanks to beauty blogger Emily Mcclure I found WEN hair By Chaz. Wen By Chaz was created by Chaz Dean and is a 5 in 1 hair product dedicated to helping women with all types of hair. Chaz Dean always knew he had a hit with Wen hair By Chaz but after watching the company slip into a few negative reviews on Amazon  I had no idea if I could believe in such a product. Thankfully, after watching Emily use the product unashamedly for 7 days I knew I could do it too. Read more about WEN Hair Care at guthyrenker.com
