donner pass

after a night in red bluff, i hooked up with the volcano highway, 89, and drove through the sierra to truckee and donner pass --- no snow at all but beautiful country

the site of the donner party's camp over the winter of 1846-1847

donner lake from donner pass

nevada city

last on my volcanic tour, sutter buttes are remnants of an eroded volcano that juts up out of the sacramento valley --- reminded me a little of shiprock in new mexico in being faintly visible from many locations ---
