Lovely summer days round Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe is one of my favorite places in the world.
Well, just about anywhere in the Sierra Nevada's.  We spent a couple nights and three days up there the first week of July and it was lovely.  First shot was sunset the first evening.
The little lake photos were from a hike we did that first morning just to the west of Donner.  It's about 8 miles round trip from the road to lower, middle and upper Loch(s) Leven.
The Lake Tahoe shots were from the Rubicon Trail, which is AMAZING.
It runs from Emerald Bay to the beach at DL Bliss state park.  My recommendation is to park at the latter, then do a "there and back" trip along the trail.  It's 99 percent simple walking, very little up and down or hilly.  That will be about 10 miles, though.  Just bring water and some snacks.  You can make it extra longer by adding Eagle Falls to the hike.  If you did it one way, you could just have someone come pick you up, or use two cars.

Last shot - the Transcontinental Railroad.  You cross this going to the little lakes mentioned above.

Here's a big gallery that I made
