    Closer than before
    2200 paved loop from Boise ID through Utah, past Lake Mead, Death Valley and the length of the Sierra Foothills as far north as Lake Tahoe. Started and ended on highway/interstate but throughout the Sierras the focus was taking the narrowest, little known backroads. Days 3 & 4 are scenic but best backroads are Days 5 through 8. Summary of days is below photo.
