Day 16. NV to CA to OR

This morning, we started out with a breakfast at Denny's. Then it was time to hit road. We went up Hwy. 395 and crossed into California.

We stopped at the Honey Lake Rest Area. Nice place. California must have spent a ton of money on it. Lots on cast concrete tables with the CalTran logo on them. The restrooms were staffed even on a Sunday. The place was spotless.

The rest stop over looks Honey Lake, which is a dry lake.

A little further up Hwy. 395, we stopped in Susanville for a couple of pictures.

In Ravendale we found another shoe tree...

The view to the north, just before Likely, CA.

The Modoc County Courthouse in Alturas, CA.

We crossed into Oregon.

We had lunch at the Burger Queen in Lakeview, OR. Then we continued up Hwy. 395, past the Albert Rim.

At Albert Lake, I took off my glasses to take a picture of John, using his camera. I took the picture, got back on my bike and we drove off. I didn't notice that I didn't have my glasses on for over 2 hours...Duh! There's no way I was going to drive the 4+ hours round trip to try and find them.

Hwy. 395 in Oregon has a whole lot of nothing... except wind and heat.

We stopped for the night at the Best Western Inn, in Hines, Oregon. We both used the pool and hot tub.
