Kayaking Lake Tahoe’s Emerald Bay

Lake Tahoe Kayaking on Emerald Bay

Whatever you do, bring snacks. El Hub and I rented kayaks today on the lake, and I kid you not, we kayaked two hours each way. The reason: to conquer (get to) Lake Tahoe’s only island, Fannette Island.

It’s a small rocky island with an old abandoned castle-like structure at the very top.

It was a very fun, physically challenging day. My arms are still burning, and the only thing that will heal them is pizza. :)

I’d never spent this much time on the lake before, and it really is shockingly blue and beautiful. It’s as blue and clear as a tropical ocean.

Here are just some pics I snapped along the way…

    Good for you, Karen! Eat all the pizza you want, you deserve it! I took a boat tour once of emerald bay (much easier than kayaking!) and it was so beautiful!

    You must be really strong if you can kayak for FOUR hours! I tried it once–and immediately got tired in about 15 minutes. The tiny current in the lagoon I learned it almost carried me away… =) I should like…train for it or something.

    This is all just stunning, Karen! Those window-frame shots are especially cool, but as usual all your photos are envy0inducing! :-D

    Looks amazing! Glad you had fun working out and — pizza!

    The pine cone made me think of Fibonacci numbers… :) haha

  11. What a beautiful place! I love lakes that are situated near mountains. Few weeks back, my husband and I visited Hakone which is near Mount Fuji in Japan (few hours away from Tokyo). The area has some beautiful lakes and the cruise we took on one of the lakes was really lovely!

    That looks like an awesome day! I’m a big fan of ruins so I would have totally paddled for hours to get there. I’m concerned for the dude in Island Pic #3, though. That life preserver will definitely not keep him afloat! It’s more like a statement necklace. :) And holy pine cone – that thing is amazing!
