Fall colors around Lake Tahoe

By: Carol Chaplin

Lake Tahoe is beautiful all year round, but the changing gold, red, and yellow leaves of autumn are truly spectacular.  As the weather continues to cool, the changes in meadow grasses, willows, and particularly the aspens are all around us. Some areas are turning faster than others, but here are a few photos from Spooner Summit on the way to Marlette Lake from last weekend.
