Jill and I went up to Lake Tahoe last weekend and kayaked down the east shore. It was spectacular! I 'd always written Tahoe off as too developed to actually have a nice Sierra experience. But thanks to Lake Tahoe Nevada State Park the east shore is really intact. The great thing about boating on the east shore is that there is no trail so a kayak is the ultimate vehicle. Lots of sandy coves and huge granite boulders coming right out of crystal clear water.
