Description

I always enjoy stopping at the Donner Lake lookout. Besides the lake, the vista also includes the historic Donner Pass, where the Central Pacific (now Union Pacific) crosses the Sierras and begins its descent east toward Truckee and Reno. To the right is the original railroad right of way. On the left side I-80 descends down to Truckee on the other side of the lake. Lots of beauty and history in one spot!
