Today I had to start climbing the last mountains I will climb on this trip. The highway went south along the east side of the mountains for several miles until crossing into California, then it turned west overt the mountains.

The route took me through Genoa, NV, the oldest settlement in Nevada.

California is the 24th state I have entered, and the last one I will cross.

It turned into another short day. I only planned to climb a little bit to Woodfords, CA, which was my goal yesterday. It only leaves me with a little over 3000 feet to climb to get to the top of Carson Pass, which shouldn’t be too difficult for one day.

One thought on “Last State (October 11)

  1. From what you’ve shown us of Utah and Nevada we should push Colorado up against California and go back to having only 48 states as it was when some of us were kids. — Alaska and Hawaii are good trades 🙂
