A visit to Carson City, NV Fire Department
|DAY 32 - OCT 3 - MONDAY
We woke to near freezing temperatures in Reno. The rains over night had apparently changed to snow and the hills were white with the snow dusting.
Today we do the Zag part of our Zig-Zag as we check out Reno, drive south to Carson City (the capital of Nevada) and then head back west through the Lake Tahoe area, Sacramento, CA and into the San Francisco bay area.
Our visit to Carson City included a tour of the Fire Headquarters and its fire museum.
As we headed west back up into the hills on our way from Carson City to Lake Tahoe, we experienced some fairly heavy snow flurries and winds. Our brief visit to the Tahoe area included a lunch stop on the shore of this beautiful lake, although weather conditions were not ideal.
We made our way on to the capital of California at Sacramento. Our plan for the next few days is to explore the San Francisco area, so we rented a car and made our way to a campground near the Lodi, CA area in Terminous, CA for Night 32.
