Started out the day in South Lake Tahoe. Headed down the 395 with the beautiful snow capped sierras to our right. A stop for lunch at Whoa Nelly Deli at the famous Tioga Gas Mart before heading to Big Pine to leave the van for the bike. After loading up the bike and topping up on gas we would ride 60 miles out to Saline Valley Warm Springs to camp for the night. The springs at Saline Valley are picturesque and very refreshing.
