Lake Tahoe & Sacramento~Deadfall Lakes, Mt. Eddy Hike

This week was my last road trip for the season (I think!!).

Went to Lake Tahoe region and Sacramento area for business and fun!

Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. It’s depth is 1,645 ft. making it America’s second deepest lake (the deepest is Crater Lake being 300 ft deeper, at 1,945 ft). We took a drive around the lake. Starting from South Shore to North Shore.

Fall Foliage, Lake Tahoe Area

The fall foliage seems a little behind this fall with the uncertain weather we’ve had this season.

Ed the photographer

Thanks Ed on the excellent tips for shooting great pictures and getting me all dialed in with the new GPS.

The State Capitol~Sacramento, Ca.

Next stop was Sacramento. Checked out the Capitol and surrounding area. This is where I really needed my GPS unit. Parked a few blocks away and well…I found my truck after a hour or so of searching.

Mt. Shasta and Black Butte Views

The next day I hooked up with the Diva group and hiked up to Deadfall Lakes and continued on to the top of Mt. Eddy. What a spectacular day with awesome 360 degree views.


There are still a few wildflowers out there. This particular flower is a Gentian. Not sure what variety since there are over 400 species.

The Diva Group

The top of Mt. Eddy. Elevation 9,025 ft. The highest point of the Eddies, part of the Klamath Mountain Range.

Looks like the temps are going to cool down a little bit this weekend but still great hiking weather. Get it while it’s good.

To all my friends in Klamath Falls, Oregon, I’ll being giving my slide presentation-“Mount Shasta Adventures” at The Ledge…Tuesday Oct. 19 at 6:00 p.m.
