Lake Tahoe semi-circleOctober 11, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 10 °C
When we started our day today, we had some company. Janet decided to join us for part of the way. So we got more or less a guided tour with many information about Incline Village, Nevada and the US tax system, the flume, the bike path project and lots more.
We stopped at Sand Harbour, an absolutely stunning place with a sand beach and boulders in the clear water. Afterwards, we followed the road along the East side of the lake and climbed up to Spooner Lake. This is where Janet turned around and we said goodbye. For us, the route followed the 50 (mainly downhill) where we stopped at a stunning view point for more photos. There were quite some tourists from all over the world and all of them wanted to talk about our trip, so we had problems to continue.
We bypassed South Lake Tahoe on pioneer trail. Before, we passed the Stateline between Nevada and California again. It was pretty obvious: Casinos in Nevada and a stereotype hippie car on the Californian side 😉
In the afternoon, we climbed Luther Pass, followed by a downhill ride on a canyon road to our campspot for the night. This side of the pass is freezing cold and we were in bed by 6.30pm.
Today was also a burn day. During the climb it was quite foggy from a prescribed fire nearby. In order to prevent wild fires to spread rapidly, they clean the forests by burning dry branches etc. in a controlled way.Read more
