Lake Tahoe in September, when the heat of summer wanes and before the snow falls. What makes it so breathtaking?
The lake is the main attraction, with more than 70 miles of shoreline. Beauty is not only found in the deep blue, though. Trees add greenery and strong wood trunks contrast with the ripply water.
Also decorating the lake are large chunks of granite.
The lake would not be as lovely without the surrounding trees. The rocks are more imposing because they sit amid fragile pine needles. Sometimes trees grow right out of the rock.
In concert, the green, the granite, the deep azure are more stunning than any one of these would be alone. It’s the whole package, and it’s tied with a ribbon called the Truckee River.
People are more beautiful in context with others, too. Who brings out the loveliness in you? Do you have people who are different from you and because of that, make you shine? Who decorates your life?
