Finding no way out of the bad weather, we waited it out. Finally, on Saturday afternoon, the long range weather forecast indicated the northwestern coast would be clearing and warm for several days. We resumed our original plan and made a bee-line head-on into cold rain through northwestern Nevada and back into California (where it never rains). From Reno we drove due east to Yuba City and near Donner Pass.

|More snow and rain and it's June already.|

A surprise break in cloud cover allowed this quick sighting of the snow capped peak.
We stayed in Yreka Monday night, June 6 and awoke on June 7 to beautiful sunshine in a bright blue sky and temperatures in the 70's. Oh joy. Today's travel will take us to Grants Pass, Oregon.
