Kirkwood to Nevada Border - January 16, 2002

These are from the ride from Kirkwood to the Nevada Border, all along California 88. There was snow much of the way, but it cleared once we descended out of the mountains and into the desert.

The sign at the Kirkwood entrance on California 88. Unfortunately, it is useless at night and we almost missed it on the way in in the dark. [800x600][1600x1200]
