Vacation 2000, Lake Tahoe and northward

Lake Tahoe in the background, probably Cascade Lake in the foreground. Smoke from northern forest fires made the view hazy here. Same location, opposite view.
Waterfall into Cascade Lake. Ground squirrel. Heading north through California. Neat red and white rock formation, center.
A pretty park in northern California whose name I forget. I surprised a group of mule deer, but they ran away too quickly for me to get their pictures.
