This is beautiful Lake Tahoe which is the second deepest lake in the United States. Its located along the border between Nevada and California in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. You are looking at the Nevada side of the Lake.
The Lake's average depth is 989 feet (301m) and the maximum depth is 12 miles (501m). That's what gives the Lake its amazing clarity and vast shades of blue. Its elevation is 6,229 feet (1899m) and is 22 miles long (35km) and 12 miles wide (19km).
Now I've given you all the facts and the best one is that its just a 2 hour drive from our home.
I grew up camping at this Lake and never tire of its serenity in all seasons.
Over the next few weeks I will share some pictures from our last visit and some wonderful Fall shots as the season changes its garments.
The posted picture doesn't do the Lake justice you really need to click on the photo to enlarge and see all the detail and color.
