Today was another spectacular day in Tahoe, with the high set to hit 70 degrees Nick and I set out in seek of yet another waterfall, Horsetail Falls. Horsetail Falls can be seen from highway 50 coming or going from Tahoe to Sacramento. Obviously, Spring is the best time for the hike as the snow begins to melt spilling from cliffs that form a narrowing valley, down huge granite slabs, from the clear pools of Pyramid Creek, which flows toward and away from the trail. A good portion of the hike is by trail, but once you hit a certain point it’s a rock scramble to the top.
Nick Right before we were about to enter desolation wilderness.
Just one of the small falls off of Horsetail.
It’s right pass the trailhead
