Eagle Falls and Emerald Bay at Tahoe

Eagle Falls

After a fantastic sermon about delighting in the sabbath, and a wonderful time of worshipping the Lord in song and word, my husband and I drove up to Lake Tahoe. We decided to go to Emerald Bay which is one of the most photographed spots at Lake Tahoe. We wanted to check out Eagle Falls, because waterfalls in the west are amazing this year due to a great abundance of snow this past winter and spring.

We hiked down a steep road to the bay, had a picnic and then hiked up to see Eagle Falls. Tahoe also has some second growth trees that are pretty big, as you can see in the photos. The photo doesn't do Eagle Falls justice, as the falls in real life look much more impressive. I'm so glad summer is here. Time to get in shape.

Glorious pictures! God has created such breath-taking things. He has to be absolutely breath-taking Himself!
Isn't it humbling to think that He would give us even a tiny deposit of creativity?! So awesome our God is!
Thank you for sharing the beauty in your part of the country!
What kind of tree is that?

I believe the trees are a sugar pine and perhaps a jeffrey pine or a sequoia. I am always in awe of God's creation. I absolutely thank Him every day for his gift of creation.
