Sierra Nevada Mountains of California and Nevada. The lake is a year
round recreational destination with skiing in Winter and water sports,
hiking and camping in Summer. The lake stradles the California and
Nevada border, and in Stateline Nevada there are casino hotels. The

on the South and East and Highway 89 on the West side of the Lake. It
is about 70 miles on the road to circle the lake. Lake Tahoe is a truly

temperatures perhaps more than their people do. The higher altitude
