Looks like a good long day. I like the perspective of these two, just like a car ad.

It begins near my house in Hercules California, and ends in the eastern Sierra Nevada mountains at the junction of Highway 89, which runs up the western side of the Lake Tahoe. Here is the route we took in the X1. The photos mostly come from the area between Arnold and Lake Tahoe.



Please note that the car started off fairly clean, but crossing the central valley through the delta, I picked up approximately 1 billion bugs. As we started climbing it seemed to get a bit less buggy. Soon the heat of the valley was replaced by cool mountain air after we started climbing out after Angels Camp (Where Mark Twain wrote about the frog jumping contest).

Hope you enjoyed the photos and hope everyone in the US had a nice 4th.
