While Ben Bernanke and previous Federal Reserve chairmen have chosen Jackson Hole for their annual retreat I prefer to visit Lake Tahoe in August or September. The weather is always beautiful this time of year providing a myriad of different shades of blue in the water, sky, and the mountains that surround the lake. Sorry for the poor picture quality…I used my phone for the pictures…also sorry for the girl that kept stepping in front of me every time I broke out the phone.
The view from the summit on Highway 50 takes my breath away every time I make the drive. If you’re ever in San Francisco, Napa Valley, or Silicon Valley you should plan at least one night on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. The drive is just over 3 hours from the bay area and well worth the trip.
