Lake Tahoe feels like a place unto itself, which straddles the states of California and Nevada high in the Sierra Mountains.
Each community surrounding the lake is as unique as the lake itself with beautiful scenery from every angle.
You can ski in the winter and swim in the crystal clear waters in the summer.
One of my favorite times are when I am alone in the mountains where I see no one and no buildings and I hear nothing but the wind and the wildlife. You feel so small and insignificant at first but then you settle in and understand how we are all part of the same natural world.
If you like to gamble, the Nevada casinos give you that excitement and fun you are looking for.
But the main attraction is this lake. Everything is about the views of the lake, whether on the shore or high on the mountain top.
If you like to hike, ski, photograph, swim, water ski, shop, gamble, or just sit back and relax, Lake Tahoe is a destination for all your senses.
