Heavenly is the main ski area at Lake Tahoe.  In summer the trails are strewn with rocks and logs.  Tons of snow must fall before the slopes are open.  A gondola runs from right next to the Marriott to the 9,150 foot level and a chair lift adds about another 1,000 feet.  Further small elevation gains are possible with a short hike.

To reach lake Angora follow a complex set of directions from South Lake Tahoe.  The final turn is not marked and the first 100 yards of that road looks impassable.  Along the way signs warn the parking lot may be full.  You will need $7 in cash or a check to place in an envelope for parking.  Follow that with a short hike up the hill and you reach Lane Angora.

  4. Lovely photos. The little thief is gorgeous, looks like one of our squirrels but with stripes, a chipmunk I guess but must be the same family?

  6. Love the chipmunk. Kind of looks like he is taking a break from work with his little hard hat. 🙂 This is one place I have never been but looks amazing and I should get it on my list.
