Hot Air Ballooning over gorgeous Lake Tahoe gives you opportunities for unbelievable photo's and is a fantastic way to see the Lake!
The photo's on this page were used with permission from one of my daughter Brie's friends, Tiffany Watts, who lived in South Lake Tahoe. Tiffany, and her friend Audrey Kolkana took a balloon ride over Lake Tahoe in May 2011 from Lake Tahoe Balloons.

One of Tiffany's pictures of Emerald Bay, Lake Tahoe, taken from the air was the Truckee Travel Guide's June 2011, Photo of the Month Contest Winner. Her winning photo was featured on the Truckee Travel Guide Home page during the month of June 2011, and can be viewed on the 2011 Truckee Photo's page.
Skimming over the waters of Lake Tahoe - what a perfect time of year to go with the snow capped mountains in the background!!
Crew from Lake Tahoe Balloons, filling the balloon and getting it ready for flight. The balloon is 10 stories high!! If I wasn't so deathly afraid of heights myself, I would love to do this. I may have to work on my fears, just for the photo opportunities, or send my son Ryan and his wife Marlene up!
This is such a gorgeous picture of the Sierra Nevada Mountains surrounding Lake Tahoe! They are up so high!!
