End of Summer

It’s getting pretty cold in the Lake Tahoe area. We already had the first snow shower in early October!
These photos were taken last month when the weather was still nice. It could be my last camp out for this year.

Cascade Lake is located only a half mile south from Lake Tahoe. It’s one of the thousands of lakes from the last glacial age in this area. I hiked up Cascade Falls Trail before sunrise. The waterfalls were completely dry at that time of the year.

I was setting up my camera and waiting for the sun to come over the lake. The sun first lit Lake Tahoe (top) and then gradually brightens up Cascade Lake. I love the warm lights of the sun.

Here are some more photos from Lake Tahoe.
