We first rode up to West Point on Hwy 26 (third time this year now, RR59 and annual trip). While the section of Hwy 26 beyond Hwy 49 is definitely fun, I discovered that even the parts of Hwy 26 closer to the central valley are great.
As we rode down Carson Pass on Hwy 88, we realized we were a little late – most of the Fall foliage was gone. There were a few spots of beautiful colors, but for the most part they were gone, we were probably 1-2 weeks late.
We had lunch in Markleeville, at the Cutthroat Brewing Company. This was the same place we stopped for lunch in 2017 with Shobhit & Akshay, but it was called “Wolf Creek Restaurant & Bar” at that time.
We rode Hwy 4 back down the Sierras (again, probably the 4th time this year) and made it home in good time.
