Meadows along the PCT just north of Showers Lake
This is easily one of the best stretches of wildflowers that you can find in the Lake Tahoe area. To get there hike South from Echo Summit or North from Carson Pass. It's about 1 mile from Showers Lake.

Cabins at Meiss Meadow
Taken from the junction of the PCT and TRT trails in Meiss Meadow.
This bowl just north of Showers Lake is probably one of the most beautiful sections of trail I have ever seen. I highly recommend it in the early to mid-summer when the wildflowers are going off.

Notice the chipmunk photo bomb here. This guy was so friendly he practically posed. I'm guessing he wanted food.

Lake Tahoe perched up above the Carson Basin
This view really gives perspective to how far above the valley floor Lake Tahoe sits. If it weren't for the Carson Range, it looks like it could just spill over into Nevada.
