The Blazing Skies at Lake Tahoe
North Lake Tahoe shores are lined by huge granite boulders. For an alpine environment that gets a lot of snow and crazy weather, Lake Tahoe still boasts 274 days of sunshine a year!

That’s a haven for a landscape photographer – I’ve always walked home with awesome sunset/sunrise shots 95% of the time I go out shooting in North Lake Tahoe.
How to get to Lake Tahoe?
There’s a couple of airports nearby and certainly shuttles and buses, but you’ll be missing out on the really cool spots around the lake if you don’t have a car.
I recommend you circle the lake, it encompasses multiple highways such as Highway 89, 50, and 28.
I have an epic guide on where are the best spots to photograph in Lake Tahoe. It has both the California and Nevada side. It also includes the place photographed above.
|STAY LIKE A LOCAL!|
Do you want to know how to make travel (especially long-term) interesting? Stay like a local! To experience a place like a local rather than a tourist gives a whole new dimension to any adventure. I use Airbnb to rent anything from a room to an entire house. If that's not attractive enough, how about $55 off your first stay via Airbnb?
Read my camera and photography guides if you want to capture scenes like this. Here’s a guide about the best travel camera. Here’s one about the best mirrorless cameras. How about the best DSLR cameras?
