September around Lake Tahoe in photos

Simply put, 2017 has been a year to remember around Lake Tahoe. A record-breaking winter made way for an exceptional season of spring skiing, followed by a beautiful, and very well-deserved summer. 

And September didn't disappoint. This last month saw Lake Tahoe treated to a taste of every season. A California heat wave marked the first week of the month, with a string of 80-degree days, which was followed mere days later by measurable snowfall on the last afternoon of summer (yes, seriously). Nevertheless, the end of September saw that autumn-like weather that most people have come to expect for this time of year. 

The photos from around Lake Tahoe during September reflect just how unique of a month it was. Lazy lake days, adventurous mornings, snowy afternoons, and colorful evenings filled our Instagram feeds. What will October have in store? Meanwhile, see a few of our favorite photos below from September around Lake Tahoe.
