Our Favorite #TahoeSouth Instagram Photos from the Month of August

Hello, Lake Tahoe Enthusiast!

Each week we sort through thousands of #tahoesouth Instagram images and every single photo we see inspires us. Keep getting after it.

10. Mayhem Cove...

Instagram Link

I tried rock climbing for the first time this month and I've grown a fond appreciation for women and men rock climbers. Not sure if I'll add this activity to my long list of current activities... But, I've been thinking a lot about it lately.

9. Desolation Wilderness

Instagram Link

Summers are short here in Lake Tahoe. Every weekend, sunny day, non-windy day, or non-work day is finding places to jump into the water. It's magical to jump into such clear waters and fresh!

8. Family Lake Time

Instagram Link

I've taken tons of photos this summer and I'm particularly stoked about this one. That's me ;). My family visits me in Tahoe every summer for two weeks. It's overwhelming at times, but, grateful to show them everything there is about Lake Tahoe that I enjoy.

7. Bonsai Rock

Instagram Link

There are so many areas around Lake Tahoe that have great rock jumping, but, Bonsai Rock is my #1 spot to jump.

6. Bears of Tahoe

If you haven't seen a bear(s) roaming around Tahoe, I hope eventually you do! As a Tahoe local, I see them often. Just the other night a momma bear and her cubs were staring at me through my living room window. Remember, bears are our friends, let's give them some space and distance. No matter how cool a selfie would be... It's just not worth it.

5. Wake Surfing on Big Blue

Instagram Link

My new obsession! I've been out a few times this summer and let me tell you... AMAZING! Adding this to my must-to-do's next summer.

4. Lake Aloha

Instagram Link

There are hundreds of little islands and rocks to jump off of. Endless adventures when you hike out to Lake Aloha. I like to cheat and take the water taxi from Echo Lake. It just means more time floating around Lake Aloha. ;)


3. Maggies Peaks

Instagram Link

Peaks for days! If you're looking for somewhere to hike this summer or fall, this is one hike to check out!


2. Family Photo Shoot

Instagram Link

This is not an ad. If you're looking to take some family photos this year, Tahoe is the place to do it!

1. "A unicorn’s life for me!"

Instagram Link

And me! There have been so many good inner tubes/floaties on Big Blue this summer. I'm guilty of having one of my own. I hope you enjoyed my favorite photos in August. Be sure to #TahoeSouth next time you're Instagramming one of your epic adventures. PEACE!
