“trees growing out of a rock!”

Bonsai Rock is located on the east side of Lake Tahoe on the Nevada side of the lake, just south of Sand Harbor, and about 20 miles from South Lake Tahoe.  It's actually pretty easy to find. Bonsai Rock is located in the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe and It's best to approach it from the North-East corner of the lake. Leave Incline Village and drive South towards Sand Harbor State Park. Pass Sand Harbor and continue for about 2 miles and look for a couple of pull outs on the right. You'll know you've got the right ones if they are immediately after an illegal pullout space on the opposite side which has a warning sign. From the parking spot you can see down to the beach. It's a steep but very short hike on lots of loose sand and rocks so don't hike down in flip flops. There are three unofficial trails from the road down to the beach, take your pick, it'll be 5 minutes max. -via http://www.fototripper.com/lake-tahoe-photo-guide-bonsai-rock/

Really cool spot. It’s difficult access seemed to keep away the massive crowds we saw everywhere else. Great fun for some bouldering all along the shore around this spot. We stayed and watched the sun set over the lake.
