The entire sky up behind us turned a blazing deep orange and yellows and lit up the rocks to eerie hues of tans and browns. The skies stayed pretty clear and blue for most of the 4 day trip to Lake Tahoe, Nevada this past week. Then one late afternoon thick clouds started rolling in, and I knew it was time to scope out the eastern shores of Lake Tahoe. We hiked down a steep cliff and searched for a spot to collect the granite rocks in the foreground of the scene, which is what I wanted the most. We found such a spot and claimed it before anyone could, probably a good hour and a half before sunset.
Very few places I’ve been, match the incredible beauty of a deep alpine lake like, Lake Tahoe. Sandy beaches, waves, pine forest, comfortable temperatures, ski resorts, casinos, sailing, romantic cruises at sunset, hiking trails, waterfalls, rivers to go tubing and kayaking and much more. We stayed at a bed and breakfast in the pines the 1st night and then opted for a motel right on the beach. Off-season is a great time to go. Rates are cheaper and you don’t fight the crowds.
