Day 144 Tahoe Blue

To me, Lake Tahoe, Nevada is one of the most beautiful places on earth.  It is my home and this beautiful blue water has been a steady my life from childhood.  Whether it was for a day in the sun, a romantic dinner and Shakespeare, school, or to celebrate the 4th of July I have been to this lake at least once a year and I hope to continue this tradition.

Lake Tahoe is a unique alpine lake (elev. 6,225 ft.) that is spread over two states.  It is nestled in the Sierra Nevada Mountains between Nevada and California.  On the Nevada side you can find a hotel/casino, bars, and beaches and on the California side you will find beautiful homes that spread from the shore to the top of the mountains.

Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the US at 1,645 ft, just behind Crater Lake in Oregon, which is 1,945 ft deep. The lake is used for boating, swimming, building sand castles, cruises (yes, it is that big!), weddings, skiing, hiking, photography and so much more.

Lake Tahoe truly is a gem to Northern Nevada and California.  If you have not yet had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful lake, you should make it a point to take a trip.

Until next time, good night
