It was time for my fantastic trip to the Sawtooth Mountains to come to an end. The last two days were basically just making miles through the vast, hot Nevada desert. There is not much in Twin Falls, except the Snake River is a pretty amazing sight:
The next morning we were up early to once again have breakfast at The Griddle. This was one of the best breakfasts I’ve had in a long time.
And yes, I ate it all. We then decided to head down 95 to 50 and make our way to Mike’s cabin in Twin Bridges, which is just outside of Lake Tahoe’s south shore. This was a windy ride but it was only about 200 miles which made for an easier morning. We arrived around 1 pm after getting some sandwiches at the deli.
We hung out until about 5 pm, just resting and waiting for Sacramento/Bay Area traffic to die down. At 5 pm we hit the road. Once in Sacramento, Mike exited off to go home and we waved at each other as I kept the throttle going, heading west on 80. I hit a few traffic jams due to an accident but other than that it was smooth sailing. I pulled in the driveway at 8:30 pm, JAC waiting for me and the kitties too. It was good to be home after logging just over 2,000 miles.
