We made the drive from Murphy's to South Lake Tahoe on Hwy 4 and really loved Ebbetts Pass. There was lots of smoke in the area from fires near Yosemite, but this did not stop us. We only saw about six other cars during our drive and loved the view and seclusion of this drive.
It was one of our favorite parts of our entire trip. The drive itself was fun and all the turnouts and small lakes were stunning. We took our time, drove slow and stopped often. Mosquito lake was beautiful and serene.
We definitely recommend this drive to anyone who loves nature and a fun drive combined together.
