Donner Pass & Abandoned Railroad Tunnels (Part 8) - Truckee/Tahoe February 2016

Back in February 2016, I took at trip to Truckee, CA and Lake Tahoe (both California and Nevada side). Most of the photos are of snowy winter scenery. I visited places such as Donner Lake, Tahoe City, Kings Beach, Abandoned Historical Central Pacific Railroad (CPRR) Tunnels, and more. I took many photos and are here to share with you. The photos will be split over several blog posts. If you have been following me on here, you'd know there has been a ton of stuff happening in my life such as my old computer breaking down and health issues I've had to deal with. This delayed my photo processing by a very long time which is why I am only posting them now. I also did vlogs on this trip. If you are interested in viewing them, you can do so here.

The photos for today are from day 3 of my trip and were taken on 2/21/2016. The photos for today are from Donner Pass, China Wall, and Abandoned Historical Central Pacific Railroad (CPRR) Tunnel #7 and #8. It is located at Donner Pass in Truckee, CA. This and the rest of the blog posts will feature photos from these abandoned railroad tunnels.

A photo of China Wall and Central Pacific Railroad Tunnel #8. Due to the time constraints that day, I didn't head into tunnel #8. China Wall is the wall in front of tunnel #8 on the right. The wall is called China Wall because Chinese workers constructed the wall along with most of the Central Pacific Railroad system.

A photo of the underpass on Old Donner Summit Road. Right behind the tree near the center is China Wall. I didn't even know this was an underpass when I took the photo, but the 4:20 graffiti cracked me up and I thought it would be funny to take a photo of it.
