The first time I saw Lake Tahoe I was amazed in its unique natural beauty. The Lake itself is the largest alpine lake in North America. Its depth is 1,645 ft, making it the USA's second-deepest (the deepest is Crater Lake in Oregon, being 300 ft deeper). Situated in the Sierra Nevada mountains of the United States, at an elevation of 6,225 ft, Lake Tahoe is located along the border between California and Nevada.
I had just driven completely around Lake Tahoe. When I had started out, it was snowing on the other side. But by the time I reached this sunset spot, the snow had melted and the snow clouds were breaking up.
