Next on my itinerary was Lake Tahoe. I’d seen pictures, heard descriptions, but never been. The stories are true: this place exists, and it’s awesome. I sent a few text messages out to the effect of “I understand the lure of boat ownership now”. The crystal clear alpine water extended for miles and miles and rugged shoreline holds thousands of secrets and hidden gems of views. I did a slow lap around the lake, stopping at various parks and vantage points.

I knew that for sunset, I wanted to circle back to the famous Bonsai Rock in NE Tahoe. There’s something special about Tahoe, especially the wild NE Nevada corner. After grabbing the sunset shots, I turned north and burned up to Eagle Lake in the Lassen National Forest for a quick night.
