A couple of years ago I went on a day trip to Lake Tahoe. On the way back we spotted a lot of cars parked by the side of the highway. We got curious and saw people were hiking towards the wooded area. We followed suit, lost the people we were trailing, but found a little hidden paradise, called Taylor Creek. Here are some of the photos I took of the creek and vicinity.
Sign says: Known for its crystal clear, blue water, Lake Tahoe depends on the quality of watersheds like Taylor Creek. Because of the natural combination of forest, meadow, marsh, stream and sand beach Taylor Creek watershed contributes clean water to Lake Tahoe.
One of the 63 streams in the Lake Tahoe basin, Taylor Creek delivers clean water to the lake and beyond to the Truckee River. Over the years the basin has been rapidly developed. Valuable wetlands in many watershed were lost. As a result, remaining wetlands have an even more important job – keeping Lake Tahoe’s water pure and clear.
