Tuscany Tower At The Peppermill Hotel
Travel Blogs from Reno
We have a very long drive today so we grab a hotel breakfast and head out onto the road towards the Lassen National Forest and Lassen Volcanic Peak. Of course, anything National is closed but we can still drive through. No interpretive centres but the view is the view.

Sometimes things just don't come together as you expect. This is especially true on a road trip. We had planned this trip with the idea we could all be together...the three girls.

We loved this hotel.. The price was good and the hotel was really grand. We were in the Tuscany Tower and our room was a room with 2 king beds. The bathroom was all marble and had a huge jetted tub and a double headed walk in shower.
