Thanks again everyone

I have some pics from the next day's drive but it will be a bit for me to get them up, as sadly, I am back at working overtime this week.

It's a great drive, and so are the other lesser popular highways across the Sierra, CA 88 and CA 108. The only trick is that most are only open during the summer, as they don't plow them after the first heavy snow. That goes for Tioga pass (CA 120) through Yosemite as well, another spectacular drive. Even on a major holiday though, traffic was pretty light last week. I'm sure the story was quite different on US 50, the major road to south Tahoe.

I do hope to make the drive on 50 across Nevada in the X. It is remarkable in it's own right for the sheer open space you cross and feel completely alone. But that will be a post for a different time
