Off to camp.


Fallen Leaf Lake
Excerpted from Wikipedia
Fallen Leaf is approximately 415 feet deep at its deepest point.
The average depth of the lake is around 240 feet, and the bottom falls away rapidly as one moves away from the shorelines. The bottom can be seen from the surface for a quarter-mile offshore. Along other shores, the bottom may be hidden in as little as 100 feet offshore.
The water quality is extremely good due to the lack of commercial development. Visibility runs around 40-50 feet under most conditions.
After the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency banned two-stroke outboards in the late 1990s, pollution from these engines was virtually eliminated.
& it's so pretty.

Hey! Glad to see that you're back. Camping is always the best. It was sorta sad to see Phil wandering by himself at Longs on Friday. His playmate has returned.

Hi Tracie: Yes, we missed Phil at Fallen Leaf - but it was really pretty. Not great for swimming this year, but beautiful nonetheless. Sam was elated; he biked all the way @ the lake. Oh! & there were bears, but you may perhaps be used to that at your home (?) They like sweet stuff.
