Just returned from a family ski trip in South Lake Tahoe and it snowed all night and most of the day we were to leave for home. Yes, four wheel drive or chains was mandatory.
On our last day in Tahoe I walked down to the lake shore to get a sunset and saw this boathouse. There was some controlled burning in the area which gave part of the sky and distant clouds the orange hue.
I have no idea what these rock piles are but assume they’re man made. No one that I talked to seemed to know. They do add some interest to one of the sparkling blue coves of Lake Tahoe.
After a full day of snow I went back to Emerald Bay the next day to find it basking in the sun.
There is a reason it’s called Emerald Bay, however, this photo doesn’t show you why. I’ll post the iconic shot tomorrow but I wanted you to see what it looked like our first morning in South Lake Tahoe last week. I have all wheel drive and needed it to get up the mountain. Had the camera wrapped up like a baby between shots to keep it warm and dry.
