Lake Tahoe 2013

I have always been drawn to the mountains.  I was lucky enough to have lived in Mammoth Lakes for two years and Tahoe for four.  While I call the flatland my home now, I will always return to the Sierras again and again.  This last time I was able to steal some of it to bring home with me.  I hope you enjoy!

These photos were taken on the trail leading from Emerald Bay to Eagle Lake.  It also continues into Desolation Wilderness to Velma Lakes, Dicks Lake and many others.  It is one of the most spectacular places on this planet and very few people venture beyond Eagle Lake.

My friend Chris was kind enough to let me practice my outdoor portrait skills.

On the second day of my trip I headed out to Angora Lakes.  These lakes are tucked in between Echo Lakes and Fallen Leaf Lake and has a small resort and beautiful little beach.  In 2007 this area was spared from a massive fire that hit South Lake Tahoe.  You can see the fire line as you drive to the parking area.

Cabins at the lake are available for rent.

Most summer days there is a line of people waiting to jump from this rock.

This whole blog thing is new to me and i'm curious as to your thoughts, etc.  Any and all input, constructive criticism etc. is appreciated.  Until next time!
