Source Caption: August 1980. Harvey's Lake Tahoe. Haven't seen this aerial shot before. My memory is that it was a surreal experience, unbelievable at the time. Something like this probably wouldn't be as weird now as then. Found in the archives of the San Francisco Chronicle. Link below with more pictures. pc Fred Larson (camera) and Peter Breinig (pilot).
