Tahoe my Home Away from Home

Tahoe is both a short drive away and also a special destination. It is worthy of a long vacation for those living far from Northern California and a blessing for those closer by. The main twin areas of Tahoe is South shore on the Nevada side, and North shore on the California side. East and West shore are worth a days exploration. I know North shore as a weekend retreat, and during summers working in Trukee. This wanderlist is a collection of my favorite Tahoe finds.
