Wintry World

Lake Tahoe, CA

South Lake Tahoe public beach in winter

Even a land-locked lake like Tahoe can produce significant surf in winter when the wind is up.

Hearty souls brave wind and cold to absorb the beauty of the snowy beach and many-colored Lake.

The light is ever changing, as clouds pass overhead and sometimes dump unexpected flurries.

Higher elevations can be less windy if colder, offering uphill hikes and still more snow.

Eagle Creek is a scenic stopping-off point, with breathtaking views of Emerald Bay in any season.

After a day of chilly hiking, a wintry sunset and cups of good cheer aptly conclude our day in nature.
