Lake Tahoe

We daytripped to Lake Tahoe from Carson City.  It is the third deepest body of water in North America; the bottom of this lake is lower than the elevation of Carson City! Steve & I had visited here once about 12 years ago, and it is just as beautiful today as it was then!  It is truly picturesque, with pristine, crystal clear water!  We pulled over at one of the lookouts and took the opportunity to play on the rocks at the waters edge. We also took the little hike down to Hidden Beach, and again, played on the rocks and even waded in the water.   We later drove around to Emerald Bay and hiked down to Vikingsholm and then to Lower Eagle Falls.  Everyone had a blast!

The water is amazingly clear

We walked to Hidden Beach on the Nevada side

My new friend Dayna suggested I read your blog. We are a family of 6 in the process of getting on the road. We are in the middle of selling all our junk, looking for a RV, and getting ready to put the house on the market. I enjoyed reading your posts about getting ready to get going. I look forward to following your family online as you are in the midst of your travels. We look forward to being there too real soon!
