Mark Twain said, “If you want to obtain the air that the angels breath, go to Tahoe.” And he was right.
Lake Tahoe is a magical place: beautiful, enchanting, a solace to the soul. And at twenty-two miles long, sixteen miles wide and over 1,600 ft deep, it is also big. So big, in fact that you can see, if you are high enough, the Coriolis effect (swirling caused by the earth’s rotation) of the wind on the lake surface.
Sure, it is somewhat touristy…a lot of tourists go there and need to be accommodated. But the scenic beauty (not to mention the awesome skiing) is amazing.
This is the first of a number of pages of pictures I took at Lake Tahoe, starting with a number from Spooner Lake, a small lake just off of route 50, the highway that takes you over the pass from Carson City, NV into the Lake Tahoe region. It is the nexus for a number of hiking trails that crisscross the region. There are also several miscellaneous shots from around Lake Tahoe itself.
I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
