Ginny Lake east of the Slab Cliffs ridge

View of Ginny Lake and Tahoe Meadows from Tahoe Rim Trail over Slab Cliffs ridge

Seen from the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) along the Slab Cliffs ridge, Ginny Lake is a blue speck within a green meadow of the Carson Range. The eastward looking view in the picture above roughly follows a diagonal from Ginny Lake to Washoe Valley and the Virgina Range. East of Ginny Lake are private forest lands. Further in the distance, the Mount Rose Highway is cutting through. Beyond the highway one can see Tahoe Meadows flanked by Slide Mountain. From the eastern edge of Tahoe Meadows, Ophir Creek follows its canyon downhill— passing Rock Lake and DavisCreek Regional Park—into Washoe Valley and Washoe Lake.
