Road Trip!!!!!: Day 8 - Reno + Gold Country + Hot Springs

This morning we caught up with my old college friend, Amber. Ate amazing breakfast at Peg's eggs in downtown Reno and then walked it off next to the Truckee River rapids.

Now we are headed back to California to Wilbur Hot Springs to finally use my Christmas present from 2008: a luxurious night at the spa in Lake County. Purchased by John back when we had jobs. First we will stop in Grass Valley and Nevada City, two gold country towns about which I have heard many good things.

Back on the road: I-80 West!

Five minutes later, Quatchi has to pee...

Goodbye NV, hello California

Nevada City wins the cuteness contest (after Quatchi, of course)

Grass Valley, not as cute

But they do sell pasties, a northern Michigan specialty!!!
(not to be confused with the other non-edible kind of pasty, which you can probably find in Reno...)

Historic Marysville

Strange house

Strange sign

Strange butte!

Strange cows!

Wilbur Hot Springs Gate!

Quatchi relaxes.

All in all, some pretty strange stuff, but Wilbur Hot Springs is very nice.


  1. This road trip looks like so much fun. I am jealous that Quatchi has such great travel companions!!

  2. I think the picture of Quatchi needing to pee is so funny! Can't wait to see more Quatchi photos!
