Hello and thank you for this forum! I will be traveling from Mpls, MN to Elk Grove, CA for a dog show in late May and am wondering what the drive is like primarily between Utah/Nev and Reno/Sacramento through the mountains. Have driven all over the Midwest, East Coast and Southern US (Smoky Mountains), but never out West. Not sure what to expect roadwise in the mountains or what I should plan to try and see along the way. I have driven in a lot of snow, but never snow in the mountains. I'm thinking of a day trip to SanFrancisco as well, any places that you know of that a dog can come along? Thanks in advance!
