Last week the day after my arrival from China we hopped in the car and drove to Reno, NV. We went there to visit with Michelle and her family. Michelle and Mary go back more than 20 years. Her son Nolan and Marco have grown up together. Not physically of course but they have spent so much time together that the time apart does not seem like anything as soon as they are together.
We drove up through the most fertile farm land in the world in Central California. On the way back we drove down US Highway 395 along the East side of the Sierras. If you ever get a chance make that drive. It is one of the more beautiful drives I've ever done. Around every corner in the road it's a postcard picture. From high country desert, to the tallest peak in the continental USA. It's just stunning.

Sunset over the desert. Taken while driving. More pole than Sunset.
Not another car ride!
Don't take my picture.
It's a long drive and much better when there are two to share the load.
