Day 1: Bay Area - Winnemucca, NV

Saturday 9/2
We plan to get up at 4AM and leave by 6AM – we finally left at around 7AM. The drive to Sacramento was a breeze – no traffic. We had breakfast short after we passed Sacramento. At a stop over at Truckee River, we met a nice couple from New Hampshire who toured the West. We passed Reno and took a little detour to Pyramid Lake. After some 30 miles through the desert, here he was – in it’s entire beauty. The light was good and we could take a great picture from the pyramid on the other side of the lake. We saw a few people fishing but other than that the lake was like untouched – it was wonderful. It was totally silent – no other cars on the road. It is great to listen to silence. After a while we drove along the lake and hit I-80 and after a short stopover in Lovelock and a tour through Nevada’s desert we stopped in Winnemucca’s Red Lion.
