Break-up Ride

10/4/03

Came back from Street Vibrations last week, only to have my girlfriend break-up with me. Crap! So, what to do, what to do? Go for a long, therapeutic ride! I had to get the weeks theme song (caution: R-rated...Linda=any ex) out of my head, so what better way to do that than to take in the breathtaking views of the Sierras, Donner Pass, Lake Tahoe, and Emerald Bay. 275 miles of 2-up fun!

Emerald Bay

 

Lake Tahoe

 

My friend, Linda, came by my house around 7:55 am and we got on our way to Auburn to meet Roy. Met Roy and he took us up Hwy 20. These two pics are at a scenic overlook stop.

 

Traveling down Donner Pass Rd. We got off the freeway at Cisco Grove and took the frontage road. This is the way get to Truckee. Great scenery and almost no traffic!

Up on Donner Summit. This road is incredible! I'm gonna do this one again really soon. After lunch at Lake Tahoe. This is just outside Tahoe City. Linda made us sandwiches, chips, dip, and some fruit! Thanks Linda!!!!

 

I have never been to Emerald Bay. There are some neat rock formations that I want to go climb on. I'll have to do that soon before this road is covered in snow! The little island behind us, has a tea house on it. The views from here were absolutely breathtaking!
