Marlette Lake Fall Colors

We prepared to go on an outing to seek out some spectacular fall colors. As I was loading the car I grabbed this image from the driveway...

On the way up 267 towards Brockway Summit, there is this old homestead that has always had reliable aspens in full fall color.

After driving down to Lake Tahoe, and then around the east shore to Spooner Summit, we unloaded the bikes and rode 4 1/2 miles uphill from Spooner Summit to Marlette Lake.  The road is relentless, but after 2 1/2 hours of effort we arrived at the shores on Marlette lake - not to be disappointed.
