You can see were high above South Lake Tahoe which is one of my spots I hang out allot at. They have great restaurants, comedy shows, harbors, good fishing, lavish hotels and even art shows. South Lake is a city its where everyone gathers to ski and snow board in the winter so seeing it this high above really shows you how large it has grown. Besides the fact that the ridge of Mt. Tallac is covered in early October snow already. We previous journeyed below Mt. Tallac up to a place on the other side called Cathedral Peak and Lake.
