After spending a couple of days on the slopes, we thought we’d take a break to explore more of Lake Tahoe’s beauty.
Enter Sand Harbor State Park, a recommended spot by our hosts and only a short 48-minute drive away. What a treat!
The water was blue, green and clear all at the same time. I read somewhere that objects can generally be seen on the bottom in 70 feet of water.
We actually climbed onto these rock formations. I was very paranoid about my camera, but we made it out of there alive!
Factoid: The lake stays at a constant 39 degrees near the bottom and can warm up to 68 degrees along the shore.
Big and beautiful. Lake Tahoe is 22 miles long and 12 miles wide.
I could’ve stayed there all day.
And you can thank my husband for this last picture who exclaimed to me, “Airplane, airplane! Take a picture of the airplane!” :)
