This "web scrapbook" collects memories of many trips over many years.
Lake Tahoe is a very large lake in the Sierra Nevada Mountains
on the border of Nevada and California not far from Reno.

Lake Tahoe is the second deepest lake in the USA. Due to its depth and size,
it has the largest volume of water of any U.S. lake apart from the 5 Great Lakes.

Lake Tahoe's surface is 6,200 feet (1,900 meters) above sea level, the highest large lake in the USA.
At this elevation there is about 20 percent less oxygen per breath than there is at sea level.

This photo shows how the lake can sometimes become a mirror of sky.
