Carson Pass and Fall Colors

Yesterday we did an all day drive with some friends from the Newcomers Club down to Carson Pass to see if the fall colors were out yet in the mountains. We were a bit early but it was still a beautiful day.

Along the way we stopped to see Snow Shoe Thompson's cave.

We also explored a bit a Carson pass where you can still see the marks on the trees from where the pioneers used chains to haul their wagons over the pass.

We had some great sandwiches for lunch in Markleeville.
