SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Tahoe's Emerald Bay has completely frozen over for perhaps the first time in decades.
Located just north of South Lake Tahoe, the last time the inlet froze over may have been in the early 1990s, according to California State Park officials.
These photos are from March 8.
Emerald Bay sees partial freezes every winter, but for the bay to completely freeze over is more unusual, officials say.
The ice is currently believed to be about 6 inches deep.
