Tahoe 2019–Part II

After our mini-vacation, we returned to South Lake Tahoe for a few final days.  The highlight of this time was a boat tour to Thunderbird Lodge.  Steve and Wende’s new neighbor in Tahoe runs these tours in addition to tours to Emerald Bay.  Their business is called Cruise Tahoe.

Rollins, MT (Flathead Lake)

Rollins is on the western shore of Flathead Lake, south of Glacier National Park.  We parked at Rollins RV Park.

Flathead Lake

Flathead Lake is the largest natural fresh water lake west of the Mississippi River.  By surface area it is apparently just very slightly larger than Lake Tahoe but I would think that as water levels change, the honor could go to either of these two lakes.  Flathead Lake has a much more irregular shoreline than Lake Tahoe giving it lots of inlets and bays.  We took a boat tour from the town of Lakeside.  We were told that the water is clean enough that many homeowners on the lake pull their water from the lake using only basic filtration.
