  7. So' Cal' to Eugene, OR via US-395 in July

    I've taken US-395 north as far as the Lake Tahoe area, but the area north of there is terra incognita to me.

    Yea, verily. The Trail Ridge Road is closed due to last year's flooding and erosion. It would have been nice for the writer to include a web link to park road conditions.
