Today.. we took a drive out. For me, it was day rest from cycling (excuses only LOL!!) The journey took us about 4 hrs; a slow and scenic view.
Brief intro of Lake Tahoe. It is the large freshwater lake in Sierra Nevada and the largest alpine lake in North America, with a surface elevation of 1,897m . Located along the border between California and Nevada, west of Carson City. Its depth is 501 m, making it the second-deepest in the United States and is listed as the 26th largest lake by volume in the world at 150.68249 km3.

The place was dominated by a mixed conifer forest….
Reaching at Lake Tahoe… it was more of a tourist attraction place in both Nevada and California. It has a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. The time I went was summer so no snow but just lots of sun. Close by was also lots of casinos but at the Nevada side which we did not head there.
Ducks baking in the sun.
Clear blue sky over Lake Tahoe.
As the lake perimeter was huge, we took a drive along its perimeter.
One of our stops was the Inspiration Point Vista (good place to come to get new ideas. HAHA!!)
