Vacation at Lake Tahoe

August 13, 2014


For a duration of six days in August, my family and I went to Lake Tahoe for vacation. We went sailing, rode on a big boat, climbed Heavenly Mountain with a gondola, explored Logan Shoals Vista Point, and engaged in other activites. I took 910 photos — and three videos — and I wanted to share some of my favorites with you.

 

I don’t know the people on the parachute thing, just thought the picture looked nice. Also, I got a good shot of an airplane at 6,200 feet above sea level. The picture of the water is a good representation of the clean and clear water of Lake Tahoe. Allegedly, it is 99.7% clean.

 

 

It was raining very hard that day. Notice the steam manifesting over the water; that means the water is warmer than the air. These pictures were taken in Emerald Bay.

 

 

A few thousand feet above Emerald Bay. That white substance on top of the mountain is a mystery to me. I’m pretty sure it’s not snow because it was 70 degrees and that mountain top didn’t look that high. It’s probably a mixture of gravel and dirt.

 

 

We took a gondola up Heavenly Mountain. The duration of the trip was about 20 minutes, and it took us up 10,067 feet above sea level. It was chilly up there, and precipitation — in the form of hail — began to fall from the sky.

 

 

Each day ended with a remarkable sunset.
