This site is often not to uncommon seeing hot air balloons over Lake Tahoe. As we ascend higher we seen things like the Tahoe Queen and hot air balloons in South Lake. For an October day its gorgeous here the weather is warming up, hikers are journeying on the trail and the lake is calm for boating. You could never seen all of these kinds of things unless you were to hike far above Lake Tahoe itself. But the higher we ascend the more we get to see.
