Sierras Road Trip Day 1

Richmond to Pull off on 108 near Long Barn, CA

I left the bay area on the 30th of October with the basic plan to head to the Sierras. I had some recommendations from friends on possible routes and places but my attitude as it usually is on these ventures was to just see where I wound up.

One of my friends told me how beautiful the Sonora Pass is to drive, so I figured I would aim for that route after dealing with some afternoon traffic and a stop for food I found myself on the Sonora pass around dark. Around 8 in the evening I noticed a decent pullout on the side of the road that looked like a great spot to spend the night.

As I let the dogs out for the evening walk and got myself settled in for the night I have to say the lasting impression of the night was the amazing view of the stars and the silence of the night. It was magical!

Overnight there were a few cars you could here pass by but it was a quiet and restful night met with another astounding view in the morning of the vast beauty of the mountains and trees around me.

This was my pull off where the above picture was taken – you can click on this pict and go to google maps location
