July around Lake Tahoe in photos

Without fail, July is one of the most popular, beautiful times of year around Lake Tahoe. Festivals dot the shoreline and villages, fireworks fill the sky, and warm, sunny days are endless. And this past July was no exception. It's been a summer to remember, with the added perk of snow still scattered on some mountaintops late into the season. 

It's hard to believe that we're already halfway through summer. Even still, there are plenty of beach days to be had, trails to be hiked, festivals to attend, and sunsets to snap. Meanwhile, check out some of our favorite photos from around Lake Tahoe during July. 

Even the sky wears tie dye in #TahoeSouth. #Regram from @spencerspellman.

Southern born and bred, Spencer was bitten by the travel bug at a young age, flying on a plane for the first time at age five and by himself for the first time at seven. While he continues to travel around the world in search for the best whiskey, Spencer now calls Reno home, where his search is for the best cocktail (and first tracks, naturally). He has written about travel, food, and drinks for a number of publications that have included the Los Angeles Times, National Geographic, Outside Magazine, and Travel + Leisure, just to name a few.
