This day was spent traveling.
Again, the thought came to mind just how huge this country is. It took us 5 hours to get from Yosemite to Lake Tahoe. (Huge and we are only in Cali)
LakeTopaz (above) was on our route.
At Tahoe, We checked in to a lovely hotel that looked like a Swiss Chalet. The little Town was buzzing. Of course, anything with a casino near by is busy. The hotel is on the corner of the state line road. So every time we crossed the road we were in Nevada, even though the hotel is in California.
The little town reminds us of Winter Park, Colorado. There are many chalets, fire pits, Ski shops and a Gondola. It is picturesque. So much so that we saw 3 weddings within a 3 block distance.
We took a self-drive tour around the Lake. It is spectacular. The Lake averages feet deep throughout. The colors are amazing.
and Emerald Island
We even stopped for photos.
Let me just say at this point how much I am enjoying watch Photographer just enjoying taking pictures for fun.
Stopped for coffee in a little village along the way. Such an amazing vibe.
There is enough water in the lake to cover all of California in 1foot of water.
On the road again...
