Whenever I come to Lake Tahoe, I do my best to visit one of my favorite spots on the lake: the Bonsai Tree rock.

It seems to be a better known and traveled location now, with rough paths leading down the side of the windy road. Even with the huge storm and news about surfing on the crazy storm winds on the lake, it was fairly calm when we arrived. But within an hour, a huge storm rolled in.

We went from a blue sky day, to a roaring freezing storm that eventually covered the lake. This shot was the last you could see of the mountains in the distance before we were enveloped in wind, cloud, and snow.
