Leaving town and driving pretty


On the third day, it was time to leave town. I could stay a few more days in this part of Lake Tahoe, but we have grounds to cover before this short road trip is over and one part of me was itching to take "that road trip that took my breath away" again, 6 years later.

Around the Lake Tahoe area, we stopped at a couple of spots to take pictures. It's not easy leaving town without that one more picture to take.

And then the scenic drive that makes this long road trip worthwhile - Highway 395 with views of the Sierra Nevada range.

As you can see we were blessed with good weather for driving, sunny with blue skies albeit a tad cool for May.

  19. I can see why you had to make a stop so you can have that "one more picture to take." And that drive on highway395 is picturesque indeed. Love those cottages; they make the scenery look more bucolic.
