After Susanville, we finally made it back into real civilization after being in the forest for what felt like weeks on end. We drove into Reno to check it out, walked into a few Casinos, lost a dollar each on the slots, and then headed out.
We drove into Truckee for some supplies, food, etc. and then headed up into the Tahoe National Forest where we camped at Sagehen Campground. There were some interesting hard flowers growing out of mud piles in the forest. Very interesting. I also acquired 6 GIANT pinecones here that I shipped home in a HUGE box.
