Hello, I'm planning a trip for April 1st of this year to head north from Death Valley all the way through to Oregon. At that time of year, should I be worried about snow or any other treacherous conditions? I'll be traveling solo with a dog in a Kia Soul. Stopping in Susanville one night. I've read such amazing things about this route that I really want to try it out but I've also read other posts that make me a bit nervous. But they're old posts. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
