2010 Road Trip – Day 11

Red, Morgan, and I fired the bikes up and made our way to Crater Lake National Park. It was a chilly morning, especially on top of the volcano, but the views were spectacular! We stopped at a few of the overlooks, took pictures, and admired the scenery, and shopped at the information center. Red was having some trouble with her brakes so she and Jon headed down to Livermore while I continued on over to Nevada. We split up in Klamath Falls, OR, just before lunch. I was sorry to see them go, but wonky brakes are not to be taken lightly.

From there I trekked across Oregon and the top of California on various state highways and US routes before ending up on I-80 in Reno. Once in to California the weather warmed up enough that I could take off the jacket liner, in fact I had to because it was getting uncomfortable to keep it on.

After getting through Reno I got off the interstate and called it a night in Fernley, NV. It’s pretty close to the start of the section of US-50 known as The Loneliest Road in America. I’ll be riding that tomorrow, on my way to Delta, UT.
