Extremely accurate bathymetric map of Lake Tahoe, California and surrounding area. Located high in the Sierra Nevadas, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America and, with a maximum depth of 1,645 feet, it’s also America’s second-deepest lake overall. It’s known for its clear water and sweeping mountain vistas. Its banks are home to a number of popular ski resorts, summer recreation areas, and casinos.
The lake is fed by 63 rivers, which drain an area equal to the surface of the lake itself; half of the water entering Lake Tahoe falls directly into it! Also, the lake only has one outlet (the Truckee River) but it only drains a third of the water that leaves the lake, the other two thirds evaporates off of its vast surface.
This three dimensional map is carved from Baltic birch wood, framed and has a acrylic covering to protect the wood. Professional cartographers are used in the creation of each individual chart in order to insure the utmost accuracy. Some maps come in two sizes in order to fit virtually any area in the home, office or boat. We have charts from areas across the U.S. available on a drop ship basis. This is a great item at an unbelievable price. If you are searching for a particular area, please call or email.
The color will differ slightly with both the frame and background as each of the maps are hand stained and may vary from the picture.
