My route for today: Start in Sacramento, drive east on US 50 to Pollock Pines. Take Sly Park Road and Mormon Emigrant Trail over to CA 88, stopping at a couple of view points along the way. Take CA 88 over Carson Pass, stopping at view points and ending up in Hope Valley. From there, take CA 89 north to Meyers and turn west on US 50. Take a side trip over to Echo Lake for the final pictures of the day.
