By the time we woke up, the smoke from the Rim Fire had cleared. We drove North to Reno where Trish did the laundry and I surprised the kids by taking them to their first visit to the midway at Circus Circus. They won a few stuffed animals and had a great time:
From Reno, we continued North. We nearly ran out of gas on the desolate road to Alturas, running 219 miles on one tank, a record for us. We had dinner at a park in Alturas and continued on, stopping for the night at a rest stop in Summer Lake, OR.
We drove 344 miles today. See the trip map for today’s drive and our current location.
