two lakes

Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake located between California and Nevada in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It has an elevation of 6,250 feet, size of 191 square miles and a maximum depth of 1,650 feet.

Pyramid Lake is a large saltwater lake located in the Northwestern Nevada desert. It has an elevation of 3,790 feet, size of 188 square miles and a maximum depth of 356 feet.

These two lakes, both beautiful in starkly different ways, are connected by the Truckee River which flows 140 miles from Lake Tahoe, down through Reno, Nevada and finally into the desert to feed Pyramid Lake.
