The Sierra Nevada is a mountain range in the Western United States, between the Central Valley of California and the Great Basin. The vast majority of the range lies in the state of California, although the Carson Range spur lies primarily in Nevada. The Sierra Nevada is part of the American Cordillera, an almost continuous chain of mountain ranges that forms the western "backbone" of the Americas.
From the decks of our spacious paddlewheeler, the M.S. Dixie II, youll be mesmerized by the beauty of Tahoes crystal blue waters and towering peaks.
