On October 18th We went in search of Fall colors. We rode to Verdi to verify that Dog Valley rd. was unpaved, Verified still unpaved, we did however see some nice Fall colors there as well as three pretty little doe deer. We continued on to Truckee CA. to the Donner memorial, after a visit to the wetlands there and the monument. We had lunch at Jax at the Tracks. Then rode up Hwy 89 around lake Tahoe with a stop at several scenic spots. Then around to Hwy 50 and back to Reno. The weather was just right, cool but not cold. the traffic was light. Great riding conditions. A perfect ride to end our riding season.
