Markleeville CA & Monitor Pass (Hwy 89) are south of Lake Tahoe, connecting US Highway 395 to the upper alpine heights of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Car camping spots and backpacking in this region are located near the aspen groves, lakes, creeks or pine forest.

Summer is prime tourists season here; Grover Hot Springs State Park is nearby, so is a bunch of lakes & creeks inside the Toiyabe National Forest / Carson District.
