Re: Big Blue

it is beautiful!



"Tahoe is a vast marine amphitheater with 193 square miles of surface area that averages, including shallows and bays, a remarkable 980 feet in depth. Its perpendicular drop-offs occur so suddenly that a boat may be in 25 feet of water one moment and in 1,400 feet the next. At normal high water level the lake is 6,229.1 feet above sea level, although shoreline rocks show that it has reached 6231.49 feet. The natural rim level, below which water may not legally be drawn, is 6,223 feet. "

Re: Big Blue

Lake Tahoe is much larger than Crater Lake. The surface area of Crater Lake is 21sq. miles compared to Tahoe's 193sq. miles. The large peak in the background is some 30+ miles away!

Herlan Peak?

This is a great shot, but why is it attached to Herlan Peak?
