June 5th – Day 32
Truckee is up in the mountains, can
have months and months of snow a year and is a skiing area. Only 20
minutes to Lake Tahoe it is also a stop for tourists all times of the
year and is set up accordingly. Cute little shops and expensive

We managed to get our clothes dry and hit the hay knowing that tomorrow's hike needed to be longer in order to finish the trip on Sunday as planned.

Sadly all good things must come to an end, although more so for the others who all had to go back to work than the skiving two of us who only had to end on to wherever the road would take us.
