On the border of California and Nevada is South Lake Tahoe, a tourist spot home to a beautiful clear lake. This city is a perfect fit for a map. Tahoe's Characteristics: Somewhat flat, forested area around the lake. Surrounded by mountains which are snowed on for most of the year. Pictures: Spoiler I would prefer that the flat areas around the lake be free of snow and heavily forested, while the mountains are snowy and surround the flat areas, just like in real life.
