Lupine Meadow at Lake Tahoe

GreenBar

I can never seem to manage a truly ‘wordless’ Wednesday post, so I’ll try again to be brief.

I took these photos last week while vacationing in Lake Tahoe.  This naturally occurring meadow was just a few miles from Tahoe City, and the Lupines and yellow Monkeyflowers were at their peak.

I was counting my lucky stars I had my Nikon with me as I overheard someone mention there hasn’t been a bloom like this in years.  Enjoy!GreenBar

  • I would love to know exactly where you took these photos. I love to hike all around the Lake Tahoe trails, but this is somewhere near the lake and I can’t figure out how I would get there! I’d appreciate it if you would share the information. Thanks!

    • Hi Cynthia – this spot is actually right along the lake, just past Tahoe City, heading towards Kings Beach (believe it or not!) If you grab a ‘Tahoe Weekly’, there’s usually a photo very similar to this one and it’ll say the exact spot. Sorry, but I don’t remember how we got there. That year, the lupine were in full glory and everyone was going crazy taking photos. This year, I hardly saw any blooming!

  • My son vacationed there this year and made no mention of wildflowers…do 20 somethings noticed these things?

    The photo of the lupin against the blue of the lake is breathtaking…Kim

  • So lovely. I want to go there someday. We always see something so I guess the cameras should stay with us at all times. However, they are a bit heavy.~~Dee

  • I have been in Tahoe but in the winter, never saw anything like this!

  • Thanks Curbstone! It was truly breathtaking to stumble upon this – glad you enjoyed it!

  • Stunning doesn’t describe it, does it? Your second photo is wonderful, an entire ocean of lupine next to the lake. At least our El Nino years are good for something other than filling up the reservoirs. Stunning wildflower displays in the West! Makes me want to pack a bag and head for Tahoe!
