  • Whats not to like about a vista as grand as this. Maybe not as big as yosemite but just as beautiful. If you are so inclined there is a great walking trail and you can actually summit quite easily.  more »
  • Great view in the background of South Lake Tahoe, it's there on the horizon and makes a great view from all over.  more »
