AM used to be my favorite resort on Lake Tahoe because it was more lowkey and seemed to be the place the locals would go, which is usually a great sign. In 2017 we visited and was looking forward to their breakfast burritos, apparently they...More

We stopped by for some photos last week. This is a crowded stop and parking is limited. Views were amazing and easy to access. Do not miss this

This area offers a great view of mountains and plain meadows. Living in a busy crowded city such as Chicago usually does not offer such a great opportunity to just look beyond the horizon and to soak in unaltered nature.
