Looking towards Lake Tahoe

Bottom of 431 after a blazing 8 mile descent

Part of the way up from the Tahoe side. This direction is much easier. The road has plenty of smooth shoulder and the grade is very consistent. I never had to go lower than 34x21 for the 8 miles up.

Trusty Fuso Steel ride.


The descent on the way back was busy with cars so I couldn't go all out until the lower sections of 431 where it widens up.
