AE7I4172.jpgA trail runs from the highway above Emerald Bay down to the water’s edge of Lake Tahoe.  It is not a long hike but it is a steady grade.  At the bottom, you come across a house called Vikingsholme.  It is a curious mixture of styles.  Situated a short distance from the shore, this must have been a great place to live when it was a private residence.  Now you can tour the house if you are interested.  I was more interested in the outside than the inside.  The grass covered roof sections and the ornamentation of the roof lines and the woodwork were very cool.
