Hello everyone, I'm planning on driving from Las Vegas to Lake Tahoe at the end of this month and staying in Lake Tahoe for 5 days. I have a few questions for about the drive and then Hiking/ camping areas of Tahoe that aren't too crowded as I'm going solo to get away and relax by myself.
I've researched a bit of the drive and understand that it's a long 8-10 hour drive. My biggest concern/ question is on the drive into Lake Tahoe from Reno. I'm a bit concerned of driving through winding roads on cliffs of mountains as I'm a little scared of heights. I don't know if this is the case of dangerous winding roads or not, but that's what I envision. I've driven through mountains just fine before, but not the kind when your right on the edge and I really would like to know what to expect.
I've read that it would be easier to fly from Vegas to Reno and rent a car to drive to Tahoe, but I don't mind the long drive and would still have to drive into Tahoe anyways. Plus I'd have to rent a car for 5 days and money is an issue.
Assuming my fears of the mountain driving to Tahoe disappear, I'm looking for quiet areas to hike and camp. I hear it's a bit commercial up there but I hope someone here can recomend some quiet places.
Thank you in advance for any help you can give me, Thank you.........Seven
