We spent the weekend in Lake Tahoe, where it is truly the offseason. No crowds, easy to get into restaurants, light traffic - all the things Tahoe is not known for. I hadn't been there for a while; some had changed, but mostly it has stayed the same. Our stay was at Squaw Valley, which is simply perfect when it is not full of people.
It is easy to forget (or not know) how beautiful Lake Tahoe really is. A crystal blue lake surrounded by soaring rocky mountains on all sides:
We had a particularly good weekend to be there in our convertible. The mornings were very cold, in the 20s, but it climbed into the 60s during the day. We drove around the lake and saw it from every angle:
All in all, an excellent visit to the Lake.
