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
designer ones, it's really pretty.
Today we drove to Oldtown Truckee to
look through the areas that are the oldest. We were just going to
spend half an hour ...
... redwood forests. Think I was the only person on the roads. Think most we're still recovering from all the Labour Day parties. The scenic route to Reno was going to take me over 6 hours, however, it was well worth it! Drove through some very pretty towns, and the gorgeous Tahoe National Forest. When I finally arrived, I was absolutely knackered! Stayed at the Peppermint Casino ...
... we eat lunch.
We like the decor in these older casinos more than many of the more modern ones. Just our preference, I suppose, as it brings back memories of how they used to look many years ago.
After an enjoyable lunch we went out to view those great cars for the last time. The crowds are getting larger. We are glad that we decided to go early! We really enjoyed our first Hot August Nights and now to home.
... packed up to move. Aaron had done so much to this house: new lighting, sound system, windows, floors, kitchen, bathrooms, etc, etc. This is the end of their kitchen/dining room: Aaron rebuilt the hearth and bench, added the mantle and built-in cabinetry and refrigerator, and installed the gorgeous stonework. So lovely! He also installed my kitchen last year and did an outstanding job.
And from there, unbelievable as it seemed, I headed home.
... River has cut. A great many gentle twist and turns later the Reno/Sparks metropolis emerges.
Interstate 80 just barely skirts the downtowns of the twin cities. We continue on 11 miles to Gold Ranch Casino and RV Park. The park looked like a good place to spend a few days on the internet and does not disappoint now that we are here.
All of us are tired after the long 351 mile drive so tonight we will just relax, watch a little boob tube, then turn in.
