Pic(k) of the Week: Lake Tahoe

2013-10-14 12.48.33

Lake Tahoe: a fresh-water glacial lake divided politically between the states of Nevada and California. At a surface elevation of 6,225 feet, it is the largest high-elevation lake in North America.

Tahoe is the second-deepest lake in North America, at 1,645 feet, and is the the 27th largest lake, by volume, in the world, at 122,160,280 acre-feet.

Water color of cobalt-blue and aquamarine. Clarity pristine, in the face of development. Lake rimmed by the mountains and cliffs of the Sierra Nevada range. Words fail, at least here at YFGF, to describe Tahoe's beauty.
