|KP National Camp at Lake Tahoe in Northern California, USA
at South Lake Tahoe
From Friday July 3rd to July 5th 2009
Where & what is South Lake Tahoe?
Located on the California/Nevada border in the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Lake Tahoe is the highest lake of its size in the United States and the largest alpine lake in North America.
* Lake Tahoe is as long as the English Channel is wide with the width of Tahoe being half again as wide as San Francisco Bay.With one dispersion of Lake Tahoe's water, the State of California would be completely covered to a depth of 14.5 inches.
* The Panama Canal (700 feet in width and 50 feet in depth) could be filled by Lake Tahoe's water and extend completely around the earth at the equator, with enough remaining in the lake to fill another channel of the same width and depth running from San Francisco to New York.
* An average 1,400,000 tons of water evaporates from the surface of Lake Tahoe every 24 hours, yet this drops the lake level only one-tenth of an inch.
* Lake Tahoe's water is 99.9% pure. The water is so clear that a 10 inch white dinner plate would be visible at 75 feet below the surface. It never freezes due to the constant mass movement of water from the bottom to the surface.
