Marlette lake is a lake near to Lake Tahoe. The hike to Marlette is about 10 miles roundtrip and known to be one of the prettiest fall hikes in the area. I went there on Oct. 19th . The colors where indeed amazing. I try to go every year in the fall but think this fall was one of the best I have seen. Maybe I caught it at just the right time as we are predicted to get snow on the 21st.
