Hwy 395 will take your breath away

Highway 395 from the Mojave Desert to Carson City, Nevada, is about 250 miles of High Desert, forests, lakes, valleys, and little towns located on the eastern side of the Sierras. January 10th was the day I drove this route.

Now, about my idea that life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but those moments that take our breath away: driving Highway 395 this time of year took my breath away time after time during the trip home from our field trial.

The "detour" added four hours to the trip home. Worth every minute -10 fold.

This was perfect for the Jeep Liberty.
The temperatures ranged from 30 to 50 degrees over that 250-mile journey. The road can be icy or a storm can blow in very quickly up in this part of the world.
There were 20 miles around Mono Lake where the fog was extremely dense.
Be prepared and enjoy these natural wonders.
