Lake Tahoe Basin Map

Lake Tahoe Basin MapMany believe that Lake Tahoe was formed by the collapse of an ancient volcanic crater, but the natural lake and mountain basin was actually formed by the rise and fall of the landscape due to faulting.

The Tahoe Basin which spans approximately 22 miles long (and 12 wide), is located on top of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Separating California from Nevada state, a year-round, mountain resort destination. In particular, this is considered the north part of the majestic Eastern Sierra range. Furthermore, Lake Tahoe is often referred to as “Jewel of the Sierra”.camp map

A thick, heavy duty guide book to the awesome back roads of Utah. One of Total Escape favorites!

Utah is bordered by Colorado to the east, Wyoming to the northeast, Idaho to the north, Arizona to the south and Nevada to the west. It also touches a corner of New Mexico in the southeast. Utah covers an area of 84,899 sq miles. Of the fifty U.S. states, Utah is the 13th-largest by area; with a population over three million, it is the 11th-least-densely populated.

Urban development is mostly concentrated in two areas: the Wasatch Front in the north-central part of the state, which is home to roughly two-thirds of the population and includes the capital city, Salt Lake City; and Washington County in the south, with more than 170,000 residents. Most of the western half of Utah lies in the Great Basin.

Utah is known for its natural diversity and is home to features ranging from arid deserts with sand dunes to thriving pine forests in mountain valleys. It is a rugged and geographically diverse state at the convergence of three distinct geological regions: the Rocky Mountains, the Great Basin, and the Colorado Plateau.
