While in Reno, Nevada visiting a cousin and his wife volunteered to be our tour guide to go see Lake Tahoe. She didn’t say we would be seeing it from several miles away but it worked out great. We went to the top of Mount Rose and down the other side a little ways and had a great view of Lake Tahoe. A side benefit was that we also got a great view of the Reno side from the mountain.
Below are several images from our trip. Even though it is June 1 there was still a lot of snow on top of Mount Rose. And it was nice and cool up there. The highlight of the trip was the fabulous vista we were able to view from a pull out near the top of Mount Rose.
This image is a slightly closer view of the lake.
During the drive up the mountain we stopped at one of the pull out over looking the Reno side and you got a few images to share.
We found the tree growing next to the highway to be kind of interesting so we got a close-up image of it for you.
We hope you enjoy these images as much as we did the actual views.
