Over The Top

It's a lovely late autumn day in the Sierra Nevada. I made excellent time over Donner Summit, and have stopped, as has become my habit, at the Starbucks in Colfax for a coffee and snack to fortify me for the rest of the drive back to the Bay Area. Alas, at this time of the year, it means I'm going to have the sun in my eyes for around an hour, which is as good a reason as any to turn south at Sacramento rather than go back via I-80/680.
