A Lupine Super Bloom is Taking Over Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe is one of the most beautiful places in Northern California, if not the entire United States. Add to it a super bloom of bright purple lupine flowers and you’re in for a rare treat.

A lupine super bloom is currently taking over portions of North Lake Tahoe beaches. These blooms aren’t uncommon, but this year’s seems to be one of the best we’ve seen in a long time.

Lupines thrive in sandy, loose soil, which make them perfect to see on the side of lakes or the ocean. Other areas of NorCal experience similar blooms, like Folsom Lake or on the shores of the Humboldt Coast, but it’s especially fun to see them in Tahoe.

The fields, located just west of Tahoe City, showcase some of the brightest flowers you’ll see with a picturesque Tahoe background. More blooms are also happening around the surrounding meadows of the Sierra Nevada near Truckee.

Here are some of our favorite photos we’ve seen of this year’s bloom:

We’ll tell you that you can find the lupine super blooms on the north shore of Lake Tahoe, but you’re going to have to find them from there. The search is the best part!

  1. Greetings! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using

    hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform.
    I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  3. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your
    articles? I mean, what you say is important and everything.
    But just imagine if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts

    Excellent Blog!

  15. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.”
    She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
    topic but I had to tell someone!
