Lake of the Sky – Exploring Lake Tahoe

Driving from Carson City, NV up to Lake Tahoe is quite the experience.  As Carson City sits at over 4000 feet in elevation it is already quite high compared to many towns in the USA.  Lake Tahoe however sits at over 6,200 feet of elevation.  On the Nevada side there is only one main route...

The Biggest Little City in the World! – Touring Reno, Carson City & Virginia City, Nevada

Just before the Nevada border the scenery took a drastic turn from arid farmland to dry desert.  We passed the Welcome to Nevada sign as we entered the outskirts of Reno.  As we drove towards the town, I had remembered the previous time I had been in Reno back in 2007.  My friend Matt and...

3 Days in and around Redding, California

When we chose to go to Redding (or most cities that we travel to), we do not do much initial research before going.  We look on a map and if the city is in an interesting natural area or in Redding’s case, the largest town in the area, we figure there has to be at...

To the Trees! Our Return to Northern California’s Redwood and Wine Regions

Entering California from Oregon Julie and I were super excited.  We have many favorite places that we had been to in the country, but this area is in the top 3.  The extreme northern part of California is just breathtakingly beautiful.  It’s also very sparsely populated being a 6 ½ hour highway drive north from...

Oregon’s National Park – Crater Lake

Lava Lands of the Central Oregon High Desert Driving south from Bend towards Crater Lake we were on the road again.  I think in terms of tourism, this part of Oregon really gets overlooked.  It’s not Portland and it’s not on its beautiful coastline.  This area of the state is special unto itself.  Only about...

The drive from White Salmon, WA to Bend, OR is nothing short of fantastic.  The drive starts after crossing the Columbia River on Oregon Route 35.  This took us down the eastern side of the Hood River Fruit Loop that we had been on the previous day.  The road then continues seemingly straight towards Mt....
