Out to California and Back

A friend of mine is having a party out in California. That's about all the excuse I need to pack up and head out. I'll be posting the trip reports on a blog and link to them here for your reading pleasure.

Here is day 1:

Hey Ghost, great read. Having been on those routes I am reliving my trips out west. It is also getting me excited for heading out towards Salt Lake City in July.

I did part of it today, from Mono Lake up to Gardnerville. Then over Carson Pass. Write up to follow.

That snow totally sucked.
