Island Lake

One of our recent trips was a visit to Black Buttes, Tahoe National Forest. Beautiful area in Sierras strewn with numerous lakes, embedded below granite ranges.
We knew the snowpack hasn't melted completely but we didn't expect the trail completely under the snow.
Walking in soft, mushy snow is no fun so we had to turn back pretty soon. Still, we were able to take plenty of gorgeous photos. The whole album is HERE.

For comparison, here are some pictures from a hike in the area last year.


  1. Wonderful photos once again! You make us dream!
