Eagles and Lake Tahoe -Outdoor Wednesday

My favorite lake is Lake Tahoe, California.  I fell in love with the area the first time I visited  while on my honeymoon over thirty years ago.  I look forward to our trips there in the summer.  

The water is crystal clear and the bluest of blues.  This beach area is a great spot to spend a day, kayaking, swimming or just to have a picnic.

I love the rock formations.

Another beach area at South Lake Tahoe. 

The workmanship on this little cabin is so unique and is in one of my favorite state parks along the shores of the lake.  

Aerial view taken by my son over
Emerald Bay.

There is an amazing change of color in the deeper waters of the lake so evident from above.

The best part of our trip this past year was seeing an Eagle's nest at the entrance to Emerald Bay.

It was amazing to see this giant nest in the top of a dead tree....

And even more amazing to see an young eagle in the adjacent tree.  ( you can also see the nest in the lower left tree)


Lake Tahoe is a nature lover's paradise!  

Happy Outdoor Wednesday!

Go visit Susan and all the other great outdoor posts.

  8. Beautiful photos of Lake Tahoe! I love Emerald Bay. It's one of the most gorgeous fresh water places on the planet. We don't go there enough and my sister only lives an hour away. Next time I visit her I think I'll suggest we go up there for the day - although not right now with this huge storm! They are predicting 10 FEET of new snow by the end of the week! Yikes! Think I'll wait till spring. :-) I'm back in Pismo this week on my post.
