Today’s hike started near the end of Fallen Leaf Lake. There is a stretch of land maybe 5 miles wide between the south end of Lake Tahoe and the north end of Fallen Leaf. After about a half mile into our hike we were high enough on the ridge to have great views of both lakes on our left. Rising more than 2000 feet above us on the right was Mt. Tallac. We always find the views spectacular, but today they were less dramatic. The day started out with fog which kept some of the mountain from view.
