Donhaue Pass from my bed

South Lake Tahoe

Finally the snow has let up and gave way to some of my favorite trail so far. Sonora pass was beautiful and the change in landscape was appreciated. It was a great feeling going over the pass and not seeing more snow capped mountains. The trail still has patches of snow and some of the steep areas have some hard snow still hanging around. I had my first bear encounter two days ago near Eagle Creek the bear and I made eye contact I yelled at it and it scampered away. The trail magic (The Owl and the Sonora Cafe) was great. I heard from Tooth Fairy that South Lake had good food so I decided to push big miles and arrived yesterday evening. The food at Whiskey Dicks was great and the ride into town and the nights stay with Joel is greatly appreciated. I passed mile 1000 and still rolling.
