Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. With a depth of 1,645 feet, it is the USA's second deepest lake (Crater Lake in Oregon is 300 feet deeper). Besides all that, it is beautiful.
Yosemite Valley is one of my favorite places in the world. The valley is one to three miles wide and seven miles deep with cliffs that are 3,000 feet high. We were there in early summer and the air was clear and the waterfalls were active.
There are plenty of waterfalls in Yosemite Valley, I can think of nine named ones. The two most famous and easy to see on a ride through the valley are Yosemite Falls and Bridalveil Fall.
