Here are some photos from my current cross country trip! Started in Sonoma County (grape vineyards and rolling green/burnt hills) Next up is Donner Summit above Donner Lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains, site of the infamous Donner party expedition of the mid-1800s. Gorgeous pine trees and snow-fed ponds, elevation about 7000'. And we had plenty of snacks!! And less than an hour away from the lush mountains, we were in the Great Basin desert of Nevada. I forgot to take pictures of the flat boring parts because I was too busy trying to keep my eyes open The hilly portions were nice to drive through though. Northern Nevada was experiencing a 100' F heatwave while we were there, thank goodness for A/C!
