Fallen Leaf Campground
We had a large site and enjoyed the tall Douglas fir old growth forest that surrounded us. Fallen Leaf Lake nearby provided a great place to enjoy the refreshing waters that were a bit warmer then Lake Tahoe. The view from the shoreline was spectacular with Tallac Peak clearly visible on the horizon.
We drove up to Emerald Bay on highway 89 stopping at Inspiration point. The view from Inspiration Point is inspirational to say the least. The waters below were crystal blue. Pictures do not seem to capture the magnificence of this scenic area. We just sat there gazing into the landscape taking in all the splendid beauty of the moment.
We visited the Tallac historical site which housed the “Lucky” Baldwin and Poe estates. The homes here have been restored to their original condition back in the early ninetieth century. The site is on the south shore of Lake Tahoe with all the natural beauty that makes this area special.
