Fall is one of our favorite times to spot the abundant Aspen groves surrounding Lake Tahoe. Now ablaze in gold, sprinkled with orange and red, it’s time to take a hike through our enchanting fall foliage landscapes and listen to the sounds of nature.

Meet Barbara Wesson of South Lake Tahoe.
Without a doubt, she was Tahoe’s greatest artisan. Dat So La Lee is considered one of the greatest basket weavers and designers among the Washoe people.
A fine collection of Dat So La Lee’s work and 900 baskets, pottery, clothing, dolls and artifacts from more than 85 tribes nationwide are on display at the Marion Steinbach Indian Museum located inside the Gatekeeper’s Museum.
