When you descend on the western edge of Slide Mountain the two greatest regional landmarks and features your going to view is Lake Tahoe & Mt. Rose which dominant the area. You can clearly see that we were once above the lake and fairly not to far away from Mt. Roses crown which to put it nicely really shows you how vast this region is. Lake Tahoe has many strange mysteries hiking above it one can hear stories about tales of giants who lived near its shore, giant man eating birds and even a lake monster. I would say farewell to our possible non Earthly visitors as we made our descent.
