We left for the Laughlin River Run on Tuesday, April 21, 2009. Marie decided to ride her Sportster. We got held up on the draw bridge over the Sacramento River on Hwy 12, so it was a good opportunity to snap a few photos.
We took Hwy 88 over Carson Pass, Hwy 88, like Hwy 80 and 50 is plowed and kept open all winter. We went through Minden, Ca., then over Monitor Pass, which was open. Sonora Pass and Tioga Pass were still closed due to snow.
The last photo is on Hwy 395, which I think is the most beautiful highway in America. The photo is above Mono Lake. Hwy 395 travels along the eastern side of the High Sierras. The mountains are 10 to 14 thousand feet and the area has many volcanic features.
We stayed the night in Bishop, Ca, a ride of about 400 miles.
