Our last 2 days, we went to Lake Tahoe and the town of Truckee and Donner's Pass.
The next day, we came back near Lake Tahoe to Truckee City. a smaller version of Virginia City, but more touristy. It is on highway 80, so it gets a lot of tourists. And they make the most money they can from them. You have to pay to park on the streets! That's just greedy! And so we didn't bother to even stop.
Just outside of Truckee is the Donner Pass Memorial.
So, it was a very interesting and informative and fun trip. Nice sights, good food, and safe travels.
