Today was our first day on the road to Wisconsin. It ended up being a long day but a fun one all the same. Day 1 mileage: 397. Our first stop was at Donner Lake in the Sierra Mountains near the Nevada border. After living in the Bay Area for over 35 years, we had never made a stop before. No crowds, light traffic, we stopped for a brief visit at Donner Lake State Park.
Next stop was Reno, Nevada. We stopped for lunch with one of Jim’s former colleagues, Anna and her daughter. We had a delightful sushi lunch.
Our afternoon drive took us to Winnemucca, Nevada and our hotel for the night from where this post is being written. But the drive was both bleek and beautiful.
