Lake Tahoe Trip — Day Four

You know more of a road by having traveled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world. — William Hazlitt

May 15, 2011 and we awoke to an inch of show on the ground. The weather man was right and the snow did come. What a surprise for the middle of May! When I went out my car was completely covered in snow.

Snow or not we headed out for Reno and the Hurrahs’ Auto Museum. TheFXP_7884 drive over U.S. 50 took us through some great scenery with the pines covered in snow against a blue sky. Fortunately there was no ice on the road and chains were not required.

DSCN1928Hurrahs’ Auto Museum contains one of the finest and largest collections of antique automobiles in the world. The collection of cars ranges from the beginning of the 20th century up to the mid 1970s. There are four galleries representing different eras and the galleries are connected by simulated street scenes depicting the 30s, 40, and 50s. There are even TV sets from the 50s playing shows like Dragnet with the appropriate commercials. It’s really a great place to spend a few hours if you ever get to Reno.

On the drive back to our hotel it began snowing again and it was sticking. We now have about three inches around our hotel room and I hope there is no more snow tonight as we would like to leave early in the morning.

Snow or not we had a great time in Lake Tahoe.

  1. It is always surprising, you can not predict and suddenly snow comes. Lovely weather like your lovely experience.
