Nevada: Lake Tahoe
Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada of the United States. Lying at 6,225 ft (1,897 m), it straddles the state line between California and Nevada, west of Carson City. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America, and at 122,160,280 acre⋅ft (150,682,490 dam3) trails only the five Great Lakes as the largest by volume in the United States. Its depth is 1,645 ft (501 m), making it the second deepest in the United States after Crater Lake in Oregon (1,945 ft (593 m)).
The lake was formed about two million years ago as part of the Lake Tahoe Basin, with the modern extent being shaped during the ice ages. It is known for the clarity of its water and the panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides. The area surrounding the lake is also referred to as Lake Tahoe, or simply Tahoe. More than 75% of the lake's watershed is national forest land, comprising the Lake Tahoe Basin Management Unit of the United States Forest Service.
Lake Tahoe is a major tourist attraction in both Nevada and California. It is home to winter sports, summer outdoor recreation, and scenery enjoyed throughout the year. Snow and ski resorts are a significant part of the area's economy and reputation. The Nevada side also offers large casinos, with highways providing year-round access to the entire area.
Approximately two-thirds of the shoreline is in California. The south shore is dominated by the lake's largest city, South Lake Tahoe, California, which adjoins the town of Stateline, Nevada, while Tahoe City, California, is located on the lake's northwest shore. Although highways run within sight of the lake shore for much of Tahoe's perimeter, many important parts of the shoreline lie within state parks or are protected by the United States Forest Service. The Lake Tahoe Watershed (USGS Huc 18100200) of 505 sq mi (1,310 km2) includes the land area that drains to the lake and the Lake Tahoe drainage divide traverses the same general area as the Tahoe Rim Trail.
Lake Tahoe is fed by 63 tributaries. These drain an area about the same size as the lake and produce half its water, with the balance entering as rain or snow falling directly on it.
The Truckee River is the lake's only outlet, flowing northeast through Reno, Nevada, into Pyramid Lake which has no outlet. It accounts for one third of the water that leaves the lake, the rest evaporating from the lake's vast surface. The flow of the Truckee River and the height of the lake are controlled by the Lake Tahoe Dam at the outlet. The natural rim is at 6,223 ft (1,897 m) above sea level, with a spillway at the dam controlling overflow. The maximum legal limit, to which the lake can be allowed to rise in order to store water, is at 6,229.1 ft (1,898.6 m). Around New Year 1996/1997 a Pineapple Express atmospheric river melted snow and caused the lake and river to overflow, inundating Reno and surrounding areas.
The 1974 film The Godfather Part II used the lakeside estate Fleur de Lac as the location of several scenes, including the elaborate First Communion celebration, the Senator's shakedown attempt of Michael, the assassination attempt on Michael, Michael disowning Fredo, Carmela Corleone's funeral, Fredo's death while fishing, and the closing scene of Michael sitting alone outside.

Governor Sandoval's Nevada State Park Video
XplorIt was proud to be part of Governor Brian Sandoval's Explore Your Nevada Initiative to enhance outdoor experiences in the Silver State.
The centerpiece of the Initiative is the addition to the State Park System of three historic ranch properties located along the East Walker River in Lyon County. Last year, a non-profit organization approached the State with a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transfer these ranches, valued at $8 million to Nevada, for free. This land, to be known as the Walker River State Recreation Area, unlocks an unprecedented 12,000 acres of ranchland and opens access to 28 miles of the East Walker River to all of us. In the Governor’s budget, there is funding to provide for the first phase of facilities at the park for camping, fishing, rafting, hiking and cabin rentals.
The Governor is also proposing the creation of the new Tule Springs State Park, located adjacent to the Tule Springs Fossil Beds National Monument, in North Las Vegas. Our State Parks team has worked closely with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas to document mammoth and other ice age fossils. Together we can develop Tule Springs State Park into a special destination for all ages to learn about Nevada’s unique prehistoric habitat.

Cathedral Gorge State Park, Nevada
Cathedral Gorge is located in a long, narrow valley where erosion has carved dramatic and unique patterns in the soft bentonite clay. Trails abound for exploring the cave-like formations and cathedral-like spires. Miller Point, a scenic overlook just north of the park entrance on U.S. 93, offers excellent views of the scenic canyon.
Cathedral Gorge is located in Eastern Nevada near city of Panaca, 1 mile north of the intersection of US Highway 93 and State Route 319.
20 Strangest Geological Formations in the US
From rocks shaped like mushrooms to other rocks shaped like mittens, here are 20 Strangest Geological Formations in the US
Subscribe to American Eye!
9. The Devil’s Slide, Utah
Another rock formation given the name associated with the devil himself, is found on the border of Wyoming in Northern Utah’s weber valley. It almost looks like a petrified water in a sense. The slide consists of two parallel limestone strata that have been tilted and protrude 40 feet on the mountainside. Similar to some of the rock formations on this list, this one here shows how different layers of rock are more resistant to erosion than others. This is the case for the limestone that makes up the slide. It’s believed that the layer of sandstone that was once in the middle, completely eroded to the point where it’s no longer visible.
8. Mexican Hat Rock
Although the name might not be politically correct, it gets it’s name for the sombrero shape and has also been on various lists for unusual place names. A little town near by is named Mexican Hat But the rock formation is just as unusual! This formation is also found in Utah in San Juan county, located in the southeastern part of state. The rock is about 60 feet high and 12 feet wide. It appears to be perfectly balanced at the top and seems like it’d be pretty fun to climb. Climbers claim it’s fairly easy to get up but the rock at the top takes some rope.
7. Little Finland, Nevada
Possibly displaying the exactly opposite of anything Finnish, is known as little finland and it’s found in Southern Nevada just east of lake mead. It gets it’s name for the fin shaped formations that are found here. Possibly one of the strangest rock formations in the world, this one is also quite difficult to get to and may require some type of off road vehicle. It’s comprised of what’s known as Red Navajo Sandstone which is the kind that’s found at the Valley of Fire as well.
6. Angel’s Landing
Found at Zion National park in Utah, this well known hiking location doesn’t just look unusual, it’s also quite dangerous to those who aren’t taking the hike seriously. This formation juts out from the ground 1,488 feet and provides spectacular views of the valley below. The trail to get to the top has been known to be extremely strenuous and there’s no mattress at the bottom in case you fall.There’s been a recorded 5 fatalities recorded by park officials and there’s only a chain to help you get to the top. The layers of rock date back to 270 million years ago back when dinosaurs roaming the planet.
5. Waffle Rock
While many strange rock formations have somewhat believable, but mysterious explanations, not all are so clear! Believed to be 300 million years old, this rock formation has baffled geologists and has even send conspiracy theorists into frenzies! The geometric patterns we see in this photo are quite smooth and elaborate, it might make some people believe these were tire tracks from fred flintstone’s car or something! Other theories include, native american carvings, aliens and giant reptiles have all been mentioned. The geological explanation seems to simply be that the cracks in the rock were filled with quartz and other parts of the sandstone, continued to erode. What do you believe!
4. Skull Rock
Located in Joshua Tree national park, this spooky looking rock formation almost looks like a human skull if you look at it from the right angle. Although it might not perfectly resemble a skully it’s can be somewhat eery for hikers to find while passing by. It’s a favorite location for visitors at this massive national park and it’s only about a 1.7 mile hike to reach and many people claim it’s a pretty easy trail. The most notable features are the eye sockets and the fore head. Just use your imagination and it’s pretty strange!
Some more crazy rock formations in Utah, these one’s are fairly similar to the mushroom stones we mentioned early but much taller and made of red sandstone. Found near the border of Arizona the toadstools are protected under the Grand Staircase escalante national monument and this area seems quite interesting to explore. It almost seems as though you’ve reached an entirely different planet when you take a look at these toadstools, and they’re scattered throughout the land here.
2. Bisti Rock Formations
Located in San Juan County in the US state of New Mexico, this desolate area in the desert is home to some mysterious looking rock formations that we see in this photo. The photos of this place are taken in the Navajo Nation and formed nearly 70 million years ago. Geologists believe the strange appearance is due to a large amount of ash deposited into swampy land and moved around from a flowing river. Today, the rocks jut out from the ground and no two seem to match. Rock formations like these are important for us to preserve to better understand Earth’s past.

Nevada's Mysterious Devil's Hole: Center of Terrifying Stories and Legends?
Nevada's Devils Hole has been the source of controversy for years. Over the years many conspiracy theories have surfaced revolving around what lies beneath the waters of Devil's Hole.
Death Valley is a National Park in North America known for being the driest and hottest place on the continent. Over one million people travel here annually to visit the Park and enjoy the amazing sights Death Valley has to offer but Death Valley is home to more than just amazing sights. Death Valley is also home to strange features surrounded by terrifying stories and legends.
Nevada's Devil’s Hole has captured the curiosity of many for centuries. The earliest writings of this strange anomaly date back all the way to when the Paiute Indians inhabited Ash Meadows.To put that into perspective, The Paiute Indians began to occupy the Ash Meadows area over 9,000 years ago. During their time here, the Paiute wrote warning tales about Devil’s Hole depicting creatures known as “Water Babies”. These Warning Tales described a creature who would surface and swallow swimmers if they swam in the warm waters for too long. Other tales suggested that a evil giant lived in the mountain springs and caves and would come down and eat unsuspecting victims right from the shore of devils hole.
Ancient Paiute Legend describes Devil’s Hole as being a portal to the a sacred city beneath Death Valley called Shinauav, meaning Ghost Land. One legend surrounding the small pool describes a maiden who fell into the hole and was immediately drug underwater. Day’s later the maiden re-appeared next to a nearby stream. It is believed by some that the maiden was drug to the underworld city and held there for days before being released.
In the late 1960’s, Charles Manson begun a commune that would later be known as “The Manson Family”. Manson convinced his followers that he was re-embodiment of Jesus Christ and that they were the original Christians.
During the Manson Family reign of terror, they would be involved in several high profile crimes including the gruesome murder of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and four others in her home on August 9,1969 as well as the attempted assassination of United States President Gerald Ford in Sacramento.
Manson took interest in finding Devil’s Hole after hearing an old Paiute legend that described a portal in Death Valley that led to underworld city in which the rivers ran upside down. He hoped that he would be able to find the entrance or portal to this underworld city in order to protect his “family” during the on coming race war he was predicting. He hoped that by finding the portal to this underworld his family would be able to live in peace and have all their needs provided for.
In 1965, four friends, 19 y/o Paul Giancontieri,, a cafeteria worker at the Nevada Test Site, his 20 y/o Brother in Law David Rose, who worked for one of the Las Vegas Casinos, along 19 year old Bill, and his younger brother Jack Alter, set out to go scuba dive inside the warm waters of Devil’s Hole. Equipped with very little gear, the four hiked up the steep barren hillside overlooking a ranch in the vast Desert landscape. Once finished climbing the hillside the group then had to follow a rocky trail that led straight to Devil’s Hole. Once the boys arrived, they quickly began scramble underneath the fence and then race down the 30 foot rocky descent to reach the dark, murky waters of Devil’s Hole. After suiting up with Scuba Tanks,Snorkel Masks, and dive lights the boys begun their dive into the deep, ominous waters of Devil’s Hole
Jack Alter, Bill’s little brother, decided to remain at the surface, just in case anything went wrong. A little past Midnight, David and Bill resurfaced from the dive. After waiting for a while for Paul, they begun to worry when he had still not re surfaced. The boys decided to wait for a little longer for their friend, but still there was no sight of Paul, so David and Bill made the fateful decision to dive back down into the dark depths of Devil’s Hole to try and find their lost friend. Bill followed David down as they descended 175 feet through the dark, eerie waters in hopes of finding their friend. As the water got darker and deeper however the boys were separated from one another. This time, only one diver would resurface. Bill and Jack Alter would be the only two to walk away from Devils Hole that Night.
