You’ve spent the morning hiking or biking Tahoe‘s famed switchbacks and found that one vista with the backdrop that made for the picture-perfect selfie that says: I climbed a mountain in Lake Tahoe today.

By noon you find yourself wearing cleats, with your golf bag strapped to the back of a cart, teeing it up for 18 holes against a stunning Sierra backdrop.

You card the best round you’ve had in five years, and with two more hours left of daylight, you say “what next?”

Finish your day with your favorite beverage at The Bear Trap Bar.
