Lake Tahoe Vacation Travel Guide | Expedia (4K)
Filled with over 39 trillion gallons of pure Sierra snowmelt and pushed a mile into the Californian and Nevada skies, Lake Tahoe is the USA’s largest alpine lake and one of the country’s oldest, year-round vacation playgrounds.
Lake Tahoe has forever drawn travellers to its shores, from the Native Americans who call this place Big Water, to the trappers, timber cutters and pioneers who followed.
When you’re ready for a little alpine magic, take the four-hour drive from San Francisco to the sunlit shores of Kings Beach. Set on Tahoe’s northern end, this beach was named after local card shark, Joe King, who used his winnings to develop some of the lake’s earliest lodgings. On the lake’s southern shore, is Pope Beach, where you’ll find another Tahoe institution, Camp Richardson.
From Pope Beach follow the bike path to the Taylor Creek Visitor Center. An open-air classroom for the entire family, the center features fabulous interpretative walks such as the Rainbow Trail.
Nearby, at DL Bliss State Park, follow the spectacular Rubicon Trail into neighboring Emerald Bay State Park. This park is home to the Eagle Falls Trail, a moderate two-mile hike that takes in some of the Sierra high country’s finest views.
When the ponderosa pines bend with the season’s first snow, Tahoe transforms into the nation’s favorite winter playground. Whether you’re looking for snow-capped peaks or crystal clear coves, places to bond with loved ones or pockets of pure solitude, The Lake in the Sky has it all.

Underwood, IA Rest Area West Bound I-80
This Rest Area is West Bound I-80 by Underwood, IA. They have a very nice art work to look at and plenty of tables to sit at. I did notice that there are only two places to grill at. They have a info center at this rest area too. Bath rooms where clean like the rest of the building. I did not go into the info center to see how that looked. I did walk around the outside of building.
Thank-you for all your comments and viewing the video. I have other videos on my YouTube page

Rushmore N.M., Devils Tower N.M., Yellowstone N.P., Grand Teton N.P., Bryce Canyon N.P., and Zion N.P. This was recorded at 4fps between August 16-19, 2017. The first day was from Bellevue, NE to Rapid City, SD. Day 2 was from Rapid City, SD to Pocatello, ID. Day 3 was from Pocatello, ID to Las Vegas, NV, and Day 4 was from Las Vegas, NV to Santa Monica, CA. Each day's drive started before sunrise, and with the exception of the drive between western Iowa and central SD during which it rained, the weather was very good.
The states passed through are:
Nebraska: 0:00:22 to 0:01:41
Iowa: 0:01:41 to 0:24:08
Minnesota: 0:24:08 to 0:27:00

The hottest temperature of this trip was 104 F (40 C) in Las Vegas, Nevada (about 4:49:24), and the coldest temperature of this trip was 48 F (9 C) in Pocatello, Idaho (about 3:24:12).
The highest elevation (9,666ft or 2,946m) was at Powder River Pass in the Bighorn Mountains (at 44.15N, 107.07W, about 2:10:43), and the lowest elevation (17ft or 5m) was at Santa Monica beach at the very end.
This trip was part of a six-day, 4,400-mile drive between Omaha, Nebraska and Santa Monica, California, and then back to Omaha. The Santa Monica to Omaha video is part of the CA-NY video.
Exploring One Of The Biggest Abandoned Mines In Nevada: Part 1
Consistent with its status as one of the biggest abandoned mines in Nevada, it requires a hike of thousands of feet and a significant elevation decline just to get down to where the underground workings really begin at this massive mine… As can be seen near the start of this video, there are twin portals and passages running parallel down to the underground workings. Our guess was that this was because one passage was for traffic entering the mine and the other for traffic departing the mine. Deep underneath the mountain, the passages converge on a main hub from which drifts branch out in all directions. At the heart of this hub is a breakroom and a large workshop. A large drift takes off to the right from the workshop, while to the left a drift meanders away and another passage descends deeper into the bowels of the mountain. In this first video, we explore the hub of the mine as well as the workings taking off to the left from the hub. Following the descending passage, we were eventually blocked by flooding as the mine workings continue deep beneath the water level inside of the mine. One can only imagine how many miles of workings are under those dark waters. Fortunately, the other main drift taking off to the left was on a slight upward incline and so the water drained down and (mostly) out.
With the miles of underground workings at this abandoned mine stretching well into the double digits, one might expect there to be quite a lot of information available on this site. However, that is not the case. There is surprisingly little information to be found online and the various government agencies involved with this site have done a pretty thorough job of scrubbing references to it from their public databases.
All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference…

Thanks for watching!
Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well.
These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, guess what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a hundred years, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born.
So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures!
Virginia City, Nevada
Recorded June 19, 1999.
Virginia City is one of the oldest established cities in Nevada. Like many cities and towns in the state, Virginia City was a mining boomtown; in fact it is one of the most famous boomtowns in the Old West as it virtually appeared overnight as a result of the Comstock Lode silver strike of 1859. During its peak, Virginia City had a population of nearly 30,000 residents. When the Comstock Lode ended in 1898, the city's population declined sharply.
The population of Virginia City is 1,000 people in the town. Virginia City was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1961. This in effect created a Virginia City Historic District. Today, Virginia City is but a shadow of its former glory, however, it still draws over 2 million visitors per year. It is one of the nation's larger National Historic Landmarks and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Keeping with tradition, Virginia City does not have any chain stores or fast food restaurants.
This video covers my short visit to the town in June 1999.
