Last one!


We did a bit of exploring today. We drove to the top of Mount Rose Tahoe Ski Resort. Mount Rose Ski Tahoe is the closest ski resort to Reno, Nevada. It is the only ski resort that offers a 360-degree view of Nevada's Truckee Meadows and Lake Tahoe. At the top of the peak on a clear day, one can see a unique transition of the arid desert to the east and lush evergreen forest of the Sierra Mountain Range to the west. The Resort is located about 30 miles south of Reno in the Carson Range. Mt. Rose is Tahoe's highest base elevation at about 8,260 feet and the summit is 9,700 feet.The resort area is 1,200 acres and is located in the Toiyabe National Forest. We will definitely go back when the snow arrives, I can imagine how beautiful it will be covered with snow.

After driving the scenic route to Mount Rose, we drove around parts of Lake Tahoe. The Aspen trees are on fire in this area as well as a lot of red maples too. I am adding a lot of pictures just to show the fall foliage. especially in the little town of Tahoe City, California. Our drive took us in and out of Nevada and California as we drove around the lake. We are planning many drives in the Tahoe area, it will take days to see it all. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. More later...
