When we got to Eagle Lake, three girls and a boy were on an island in the lake. As they made their way back to shore, swimming across the frigid water, they stopped on a submerged rock – it gave the appearance of standing on the surface of the water. Lake Tahoe – Img 48380

  1. Beautiful photos. On our way back on Rubicon Trail the sun partially came out and the lake colors were amazing. Have you and Karin ever been to Sugar Pine Point State Park? We stopped there the next day and the water color was turquoise. We were there once in the winter and the pier was covered in icicles, and the water was much higher than this time. You can also find the huge Sugar Pine pinecones! I think they are the largest cone. I brought home three, that’s all I could find. I don’t think they fall every year like others. Anyway, thanks again. Love your photos. (Lake Tahoe Rubicon Trail” photo)
