After a short stay in San Francisco, our first stop on our Best of the West Roadtrip was “The Biggest Little City in the World.” We chose to amble through the Sierra Nevada mountains along the breathtaking State Highway 4, also known as Ebbets’ Pass. After a healthy dose of alpine scenery and fresh air, we dropped down into the high desert foothills of Reno and Carson City for family time and a quick slice of Americana.
Our summer holidays are traditionally complicated affairs. In between visits across all the branches of our family tree, we cram in “American” sights and experiences that we hope are impressionable for our little TCKs. The trip home this year was especially hectic since it was planned last minute, included an honorary member, and turned into a whirlwind roadtrip. This is a brief overview of the route and a few pictures of our incredible journey across the West.
