Temp 11

Odds 'n' ends from a June, 2011 visit to Lake Tahoe. . . .
If you're not familiar with this sapphire jewel, here's a quick rundown of the basics:
It sits on the border between California and Nevada, with roughly 2/3 of it in California.
It is 22 miles/35 km long by 12 miles/19 km wide, sitting 6225 ft/1897 m above sea level.
It is 1645 ft/501 m deep at its deepest point, with an average depth of almost 1000 ft/305 m.
The current water clarity (how far down the naked eye can make out a 10-inch white disk)
is 70 ft/21 m, down from a depth of 120 ft/36.5 m 40 years ago, and considerably more
than that before the effects of logging, development and pollution took their toll. . . .
