Lake Tahoe Fall Colors Part 3

October 18-19, 2019

In Part 2 we ended at Topaz Lake. For this final part of the trip we left route 395 and headed toward Lake Tahoe on Route 89. There was not as much color as I was hoping for, but a lot of pine trees.

In the next photo, we came across this perfect set of four trees with the strange white cloud overhead that had no definition in the white color.

We found the spot where there were reported to be some aspens with orange leaves.

We continued on and came across a creek that had good views from the bridge. One guy said that he thought this was the best spot in the whole area. Click to see more.

We finally reached Lake Tahoe and found our RV park in the pine trees. The next morning we started out with cloudy skies. There were patches of yellow trees along the route around the lake.

We took a detour to go up Route 431 heading toward Reno as it was suggested there was good color along it. We found only golden grasses.

At one stop along the lake we found a couple of girls playing with their dog.

At the north end of the lake, I found some color in a swamp area.

There were crowds of people and a clogged road to see this island in Emerald Bay.

The final road we followed was to Feather Lake on the south end of Lake Tahoe. An interesting stop was to see the horses out in the meadow and they were not shy to come up to the people.

  1. Favorites – #4 with strange cloud formation, first one with creek and brilliant color, and the horse face (all are great though), The ones with lying fence rails is great composition.

  2. Another great photo experience to revive old memories of being in and around Lake Tahoe! I rode my bike around the lake on one trip. It was a killer but I enjoyed it all. Thanks for sending, Charles. Your expert photography is always a treat.

  4. Charles, You may think there was not much color, but in contrast to Wisconsin there was. No more flowers, trees are pretty bare but at least no white stuff left on the ground for now. Beautiful photos as always. Sue
