Cascade Lake is a glacier lake off South Lake Tahoe in northern California. With a padlocked gate blocking the only entrance in and only six homes flanking the edge of the lake, this is a very secluded and private space – unlike the populated areas of Lake Tahoe and South Lake Tahoe. Cascade Falls feeds this lake from the melting snowfall on Mount Tallac. Usually by the second week of July the snow is gone and the falls have slowed to a trickle, if not dried up altogether, but with the tremendous snowfalls of last winter, there is plenty of snow left and the falls will probably be running through August.
