Lake Tahoe, USA
Der etwa 497 km² große Lake Tahoe ist ein See auf der Grenze der US-Bundesstaaten Nevada und Kalifornien. Der See wurde im 19. Jahrhundert zunächst bis 1862 Lake Bigler genannt, zu Ehren des dritten Gouverneurs von Kalifornien, John Bigler. 1862 wurde dann der Name Tahoe (nach dá'aw Washoe für See) eingeführt und beide Namen wurden parallel genutzt. Erst seit 1945 heißt der See offiziell Lake Tahoe.
