  • Fall drive through the Sierra - Oct 19th

    We will start at 10am at the Starbucks near Jackson, along CA 89 and up along Lake Tahoe. There's plenty of quaking aspen along this route, so I'm hoping for some nice colors. I plan this to be a day trip, but I know a number of folks will spend the night. For those staying, we'll have dinner at Smokey's Cafe.

    I hope this link comes out okay (might not work correctly on phone and tablets). The route is Jackson > Ridge Road > Shot Rock Vista (restroom stop) > Caples Lake > Stop at turn out just east of Carson Pass > Lunch at Chicos Burger (simple but tasty) > West side of Lake Tahoe > highway 267 > Truckee.

      October 19 is good. Sign me up. I'm in. This makes me happy!

      I knew September would be a difficult month for me to commit to anything, and everything was up in the air. And now I know I can't attend any of the September drives with you folks. But October is doable! Yay!

                      LouieV is in. Rhonda is a "probably not" but she's going to try. I see from the fall colors map, the leaves are starting to change...

                        .

                        Woohoo! I hope it works out. I also hope for good weather. I’m a little concerned since we’ve already had a first snow.

                          Snow?

                          I guess we could consider slowing down.

                          I hope things stay clear.

                              Anything below 40F is questionable, according to Tire Rack. So even if we have clear skies, the temperature might be reason for canceling. Always a little risky in October.

                                  Please keep me posted. I have this on my calendar, have been expecting to go, and was going to sit down this weekend to figure out my plan. So please let me know if things are changing.

                                      Hey there Frank, I found two Starbucks on Google Earth on Hwy 49 a little north of Jackson in Martell, one north of Industry Blvd by the Jack in the Box and the other south of Industry in the Safeway. At which one were you planning to meet up?

                                        It’s the one on Old Mill Road. See the rough map linked in the first post.
