If you haven’t enjoyed the night sky in Tahoe-Truckee, you’re missing one of the most beautiful and under-appreciated landscapes in the High Sierra, as captured by photographer Matt Bansak in this East Shore shot featuring Banzai Rock set against the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy. Take your own tour of the night sky with Tahoe Star Tours and Tahoe Adventure Company, offering a unique combo of sunset kayak and stargazing over Lake Tahoe (see Tahoe Time in this issue). Tag your favorite Tahoe photos with both @TheTahoeWeekly and #tahoetime on Instagram for a chance to win tickets to see Jeremy Jones’ “Higher.”
