Trees abound

The preserved tree line is the most fabulous to remember, in my opinion. They lake is pristine and looks untouched by human encroachment. Not totally true, but very nice even though.

Really one of our better locations in US

Views are magnificent and at the right places off the road, you can gawk.

Keep the trees

But I read that 53 million are used just for Christmas magazines sent to homes by department stores. So at least this area did not get hit with cutting. I have seen the slash cutting in the South and other areas. It is not pretty. Most of the Redwoods from here to CAlifornia were cut before the last 5% were hands off.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A nice area to take in nature
  • Cons:It could get really crowded with people at times
  • In a nutshell:A beautiful nature scene well preserved except for tourists

    Have often heard about Lake Tahoe, good to read about it. Skiing for 8months is very good compared to the Australian ski season.

    There is a slight chance that we are going to the west coast of the USA next year, so I'm looking for ideas and information. Thank you for the information about this beautiful area.
