Lake Tahoe, the queen of California lakes, faces a mountain of woes—population and pollution threaten the lake’s natural beauty—but if you come to D. L. Bliss State Park and hike down the Rubicon Trail toward Emerald Bay State Park, you’ll see Tahoe almost as Mark Twain did. He wrote, “The air up there is very pure and fine, bracing and delicious. It is the same air the angels breathe. . . . The view was always fascinating, bewitching, entrancing.” Tahoe still has the same effect, and D. L. Bliss State Park shows her off at her best.
