It is twenty-three miles wide and from 100 to 2,000 feet deep. The entire region surrounding the lake is picturesque almost beyond description, and a never ending delight to the eye. Lake Tahoe is easily reached by a short side trip up the picturesque canyon of the Truckee river from Truckee, California, on the main line of "The Overland Route."
