Speechless Sunday (Almost) - Bridal Veil Falls, Lake Tahoe

Traveling down Highway 50, West bound, away from Lake Tahoe stops you at a majestic site, Bridal Veil Falls.  When it is in winter and even better during the snow melt, it can really roar.  We were passing and saw that the Bridal Veil was showing, so I had to stop on the side of the road and snap this picture...

Seeing Bridal Veil Falls in the winter...

Now if you look closely at the trees, you can see ghost images of duplicate limps. That is because the actual waterfall is over 150 feet high.  So I took this picture with my iPhone, and auto stitched it together with an app from the iTunes store.  I took about 12 pictures, then chose all 12 and the program matched the picture to create the awesome shot.  You cannot capture the whole falls in one shot, so the program worked great!  It does it in a matter of seconds, on your iPhone.

It is located on Esmeralda Creek, in Pollack Pines, in the El Dorado National Forest in El Dorado County.

Next time you are driving to Tahoe from the California side, make it a point to stop.  Easy parking, and great place for pictures.  parking is in a large turnout (paved) on the side of the road.
