The narrow perpendicular thing across the water is the Firestove and why it is called "Firestove Beach". It is on the east side of Lake Tahoe. I had to hike all the way down to the shoreline to get this photo. The way down wasn't the problem. It was coming back up. It was a steep, steep pathway and I was totally out of breath when I got back up to the roadway. The below photo gives you an idea (taken from the road above). The photo is worth it, though... I think. I think maybe most people get there by boat.
