The small, lush, otter pond above Linken Dam on the McCloud River. A great place to stop and have lunch and just relax for a bit.

So just what do you do after backpacking for 2 days in the summer, climbing almost 2000ft in elevation over a distance of just under 2 miles with no trail!? Forget setting up the tent, strip off and jump in the closest body of water!

Below Cave Rock is a little cove and boat launch that grants a vew of the iconic rock while hiding the road, and the caves, from view.

Even a rainy day at Lake Tahoe can give you some good opportunities for pictures. This image was taken from the boat launch at Cave Rock looking out towards the California side of the lake.
