Not much snow free in Tahoe yet this season.  Blue Lakes Road was open to the 7mi point- which was just enough to head up to Markleeville.  

Quick outing- 4mi round trip and about 1600ft of gain.
This was my 2nd ascent of Markleeville- the first in 2009.

The closure point of Blue Lakes Road- just past Charity Valley.
Not sure what "Snow Removal Operations" were taking place- it didn't look like the road beyond the gate had seen any form of plow activity.

A guy on roller skis came down the road as I was heading out.

Headed about 50 yards up the road before turning right and starting upslope.  Still quite a bit of snow on the road.

Circled around to the back of Charity Valley- hoping to take a much more direct approach than I ended up taking.  This was one of the many snow bridges that I managed to avoid on the lower slopes.

Would have had an abrupt end to my outing had I tried to walk across that.

I had wanted to climb the slope opposite this runoff creek- but I couldn't find a safe place to descend into the gully and cross.   Scouted up and down a bit before giving up and looked for more southern options.
