  • The road from Truckee with an overlook puts the stories of the pioneers in perspective. Well worth the extra time heading back toward the west.  more »
  • I drive over Donner Pass whenever visiting family. The views are gorgeous. If it's snowing, the drive can be treacherous. A must excursion for nothing else but the view.  more »
