South Tahoe Snags

On the California side of South Shore Lake Tahoe there is an area where something had killed a large grove of phone.  The bleached wood and bright snow make for a great contrast with the clear high altitude skis of Lake Tahoe.

Avalanche Lake

The mountains that ring the south end of Avalanche Lake obviously suffer from the event for which this lake was named for.  The remains of hundreds of trees that were victims of those avalanches cover the north end of the lake.  But in early winter the lake is a peaceful place to watch to weather pass over the ridge line.  This lake is in the west side of Glacier National Park in Montana.
