Eldorado/Humboldt-Toiyabe NF (Cellphone Photos)

On 3 October 2022, my parents and I spent a day in Eldorado National Forest and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in California. We drove on State Route 88 and visited some of the side roads along the highway. We went to Lower Bear River Reservoir, Peddler Hill Scenic Viewpoint, Mormon Emigrant Trail, Strawberry Creek Barn, Lower Blue Lake, Alpine County, CA, and Minden, NV (for petrol). I took photos with my phone and with my mirrorless camera. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos!

Later we went to Minden, NV to get some cheap petrol (compared to California). We also stopped on the side of the road in Alpine County, CA to get a sunset scenery photo of a ranch.

Address: 1651 NV-88, Minden, NV 89423

At the end of the trip, we stopped in Minden, NV for some petrol. We needed some for the trip home and Nevada prices are a lot cheaper compared to California. We drove approximately an extra 10 miles than if we went to South Lake Tahoe, CA for petrol. We saved money, and we got to see a beautiful sunset at the end of the day and a tiny bit of autumn foliage.

This is all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing the photos! Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
