Where to find the most scenic places in Lake Tahoe? My wife and I were picked up in the morning by Tom, who was our guide for the day. We visited exceptionally beautiful places throughout the day and captured these images. Tom took the time to share the history of Lake Tahoe and what life is like in this community. Tom, not only took us to many memorable spots on the lake, but also shared where to capture the sunsets, where to find the Aspens exploding with color, and other beautiful locations we didn't have time to visit. What an exceptional day!
