  8. 8. Highlights of Her Trip"My favorite place we traveled toTahoe. Lake TahoeHer Tripthroughout the entire trip was Lake is honestly themost stunning body of water I haveever seen in my life. I fell in love withits 3 different colors of water as aboat took us out into the deeper partof the lake to do tubing. The shorehas bits of gold-like glitter in thecrystal clear water, making it shine. Ifyou move farther out into the lake,the water turns turquoise like theCaribbean water. The deepest partof the lake is a dark blue, like that ofthe Greek islands"
