Are you enjoying the posts of my recent Lake Tahoe trip? To spend the week with a group of women entrepreneurs in an mega mansion at Lake Tahoe really was an incredible and motivating experience. In this Part 4 of 5, you’ll see the breathtaking photos of our drive up the mountain to Emerald Bay and Eagle Falls.
If you missed Parts 1, 2, or 3 you can view them here:
On Day 4 of our business retreat at the mega mansion, our host treated us to a 20 minute drive west to Emerald Bay State Park.
Emerald Bay is an inlet off the south-west part of Lake Tahoe. It was declared a National Natural Landmark in 1969 by the Federal Department of the Interior. In 1994, the State of California included the water portion of the bay part of the park, making Emerald Bay one of the first underwater parks in California.
We drove up a winding road to what seemed like the top of the mountains. At one point I felt as though we were driving on a land bridge along the upper-most peak because the road dropped off on either side of the narrow road.
When we got to the the other side we parked in a state park parking lot just beyond the rocks in the photo above. It was a short walk to this overlook area and viewing point.
It was here that we could see the entire bay. The colors of the water were actually much brighter in person. Emerald Bay is known for its crystal clear water.
Here’s part of our group of 14 women. Michall, who came all the way from Isreal, was such a good sport to wear her Happy Birthday crown all day! Michall Medina is a mindset coach, an international bestselling author and speaker, and a former electrical engineer. I love learning about people’s backgrounds and what lead them to where they are now.
And here’s Dorene again showing off the Lake!
Behind us the mountains climbed even higher…
From here we took a walk down just down the road to Eagle Falls – which was actually snow & ice melting off the mountain.
Here we are at the top of Eagle Falls… it’s a pretty steep drop off the edge here…
This video will give you a better view of the Falls. I left the sound on so you could hear how powerful they were.
These may be a step away from my typical home and refinished furniture posts, but sometimes you have to step outside for inspiration. And then come back and see your home differently… or appreciate the way it already is even more.
