Examples of Lake Tahoe in a Sentence

  1. Adrian Ballinger:

    Emily and I spend a lot of time talking about climbing, but we also spent a lot of time not talking about climbing, so much of what we love doing together is actually not our profession. We love cooking, we love spending time on Lake Tahoe, we love traveling to places we haven't been to before.

  2. Carole Scofield:

    Carole Scofield told the news station Carole Scofield thinks this is the second time this same bear has broken into their home looking for food. The first time it broke down their front door. In total, the couple said they have had trouble with bears on six different occasions during the 20 years they’ve lived in South Lake Tahoe. Lesa Johnston, with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, told KOLO8 that bears normally rummage through trash cans in search of food, but they're also known to look elsewhere. At some point in the bears' life, they gain some type of food reward by breaking in a cabin or a home, so they remember that, so the behavior is likely to be repeated, Lesa Johnston said. We are very lucky, both major break-ins, we were very lucky. I know a lot of people have not been. It has been very, very costly.
