Secret Cove - Lake Tahoe
This cove is not readily available unless you hike down to the water from the main highway. It is hidden and the hike is medium strenuous with a good downhill hike just before the lake. A gorgeous and serene place.

High Sierras just outside of Lone Pine lies this grand mountain that hikers love. We drove to the portal but did not make it - the narrow and twisting road kept us chickens from reaching it. The view is still spectacular. In mid-October the Aspens are almost spent but you can still see the patches of yellow/orange trees in the ravines.
