By September 25, we were down to the west shore of Lake Tahoe. We stayed one night at a state park between the coast and Tahoe. We camped two nights at a National Forest Campground right on Lake Tahoe. The color of the water was gorgeous and the mountains around the lake take your breath away.
( Writing this from Wickenburg, Arizona on October 5. Enjoying an afternoon thunderstorm today.)
Camp sites around the lake are at a premium so they are close together. That looks like where we should park our vehicle next to the camper but it is another camp site!
On the way south, leaving Tahoe, this was one of the roads we didn't take.
