Donner Pass: April 2009
Some 155 years after the initial Donner Party, The Grizzly and occupants crossed the Sierras in a snow storm today April 8, 2009.
We crossed a few days ago in bright sun. We had a meeting in Reno to return today for meetings tomorrow in Sacramento. We did not anticipate the snow and the early morning found closures on I-80 west bound.
We waited until 11:00am to head out on the two hour trek. Most of the crossing was in the mountains and the video captures a few minutes of the crossing. The Grizzly was amazing starting with 30+ mph winds, then snow and then rain.
No worries, the trip was a breeze and actually a lot of fun.
