Day 1 – Leave from home to Williams (150 miles)
We leave at 10:30 and go via Glenshire to Donner Lake.
Next we go on old historic Hwy. 40 to Donner Summit.
Tin Lizzie is missing a little, but we make it over the bridge and to the summit.(No snow like in 1909!)
We go from Old Hwy. 40 onto Hwy. 20. We stop for lunch in Nevada City at “The Lumberjack”. We make a rest stop at a county park. Rick’s back is giving him fits. He is having pain like never before. He rests in the shade. I take a little walk and run into a couple walking their llama and alpaca! I walk along the river to a floating bridge and back. There are signs saying beware of “rattlesnakes and poison oak”.
We go on through Marysville, Yuba City, Colusa, and make it to Williams by 6. We stay at Granzella’s Inn. We enjoy a dip in the pool and hot tub. Then dinner at their great Italian restaurant. Rick’s back is so bad he can hardly walk. Hope it is better tomorrow.
