Monterrey Bay to Reno

Santa Cruz Boardwalk

I’d spent a good long time hanging around the Colorado River and it was time, time to move on. Through Barstow, Bakersfield and Santa Nella to Monterrey Bay, just 10 miles south of Santa Cruz.

The area is spectacularly beautiful, but also spectacularly expensive.

From there I went to Sacramento to have some routine maintenance on the RV, plus a repair of a hydraulic jack (same problem as in 2013, but a different jack). Since it looks like 3-4 weeks to get the part they need, I headed on, through Donner Pass, to a pretty nice spot just 7 miles outside Reno.
