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.
Boden's condo in Bitterbrush had a terrific view from above Incline Village.
In this photo you can see from the Hyatt at extreme left, downhill to Incline Village,
and over to Crystal Bay on the right. And across the lake to the California side.
Brilliant sunset from the condo
The lake water is pure snowmelt and crystal clear
with shades of blue and green. It is possible to see scores of feet into the lake as this photo shows.
