Now that's a relaxing afternoon. A waterfall with Lake Tahoe in the distance. It's a Mother Nature natural stress reliever. ⁣

The tapestry of spring comes to life in #Yosemite. Mother Nature really knows how to paint. Looking from Cooks Meadow, #HalfDome seems to be enjoying the sunshine and cotton ball clouds.⁣

If this picture doesn't look like a #springtime painting, we don't know what does! Look at those colors. We give the award for best pastel landscape to Mother Nature, hands down.⁣

Spring may be in the air... but Tahoe still has a few winter landscapes (with pastel colors of course) sprinkled around the mountains. Are you still playing in the snow?⁣
