'Lake Tahoe', 1874. Creator: John Karst
'Lake Tahoe', 1874. Large freshwater lake which straddles California and Nevada, in the Sierra Nevada, USA. 'Though it lies under the unbroken sunlight through a great part of the summer weather, there is perpetual variation in the great mountain-shadows, and in breeze and calm on the surface. There is a climate here that makes almost the ideal atmosphere. It is neither cold to chilliness nor warm to discomfort, but always bracing, invigorating, inspiring with a kind of pleasant and energetic intoxication...There are trout in the waters around, and fishing here is more than sport - it is a lounge in dream-land, a rest in a region hardly surpassed anywhere on the globe'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant.
