Featured Blog: Lake Tahoe’s history involves a volcano, the Ice Age, and 101 years of not being called Tahoe
May 6 @ 8:00 pm
Did you know that Lake Tahoe was partially formed thanks to a volcano?! Yup, Mount Pluto, now extinct, erupted two million years ago, and its lava and mud flows dammed up the northern part of the lake. Other naturally occurring events, like shifting fault lines and passing glaciers (one of which mothered Emerald Bay!), also helped form the Lake Tahoe Basin.
