I was curious about how lake Tahoe formed and found this: About five million years ago, the shifting of the earth's crust gave rise to the Carson Range and the Sierra Nevada. Between these ranges, another part of the crust sank, forming an extremely deep and steep-walled valley. This valley collected all of the ice melt from the new ranges on either side of it and, for millions of years, released it to the north.
The formation of Lake Tahoe as we know it today took place about two million years ago when the original valley basin became blocked off by volcanic action. During an eruption of the now-extinct Mount Pluto, lava flows and mudslides sealed off the northern end of the valley. Snowmelt and runoff from the mountain range on either side continued to flow into the newly formed basin. Without an exit, however, it began to collect and eventually gave rise to an ancient Lake Tahoe that was several hundred feet deeper than the lake we know today.
Over time, the water in the basin wore away a new outlet, forming what is now the Lower Truckee River outlet on the northern side of the lake.
