We're going to South Lake Tahoe in September to hike some and make lots of photos. I would like to know if the fires last year (or two years ago?) got as far as the eastern part of Fallen Leaf Lake, Lily Lake or Echo Lake. I've been to Lake Tahoe 12 to 15 times to hike and ski but never as a ([an] amateur)photographer and burned trees won't make very good photos.
FWIW we're going for a week and I decided to rent a house rather than stay in one of the casino hotels and I found the rental homes quite reasonable.
