Day 12: September 29 Lassen Volcanic National Park and Reno
Waffle for Breakfast before leaving Medford, Oregon at 7:45.
Mount Shasta is beautiful – covered in snow.We could see it for a long time as we drove.
We stopped to see the Sundial Bridge in Redding, Oregon.It is a beautiful bridge that works as a sundial.The road of the bridge is made of glass.A beautiful park.
Lassen Volcanic National Park – the most rugged terrain I have ever seen.And the steepest mountain roads.They don’t seem to like guard rails here – it was really scary in places.This was the first time we were higher than the snow caps.We were riding along beside them.
Reno.We got here about 3:30 – checked in the Eldorado Hotel/Casino.It is so beautiful. I think it is an older building that has been well maintained and refurbished.It has the most beautiful light fixtures, mirrors, statuary and water fountains.I managed to lose $2.00 at Blackjack – I’m a real high roller.Our room here is one of the nicest I’ve seen – with a great view of Reno.We are planning to stay here for two nights.
I’m really enjoying staying in one place for two nights.We’ve driven 5700 miles.
