We started at the Starbucks on Mt. Rose Hwy (431) stopped at the Lake for a Kodak moment, then continued through Incline Village (28) with a stop at Starbucks at around 11:30am (15-20 min stop, depending on how many want mochas and frappuccinos…) and pick up more members, and then continued south on 28 along Lake Tahoe to Carson City (50) to catch the Six Mile Canyon Road, left on Main Street in Virginia City, ETA – 12:15-12:30. Some folks may want to park on the lower side streets depending on the space available in parking lot.

Virginia City is an experience going back 150 years. Let your adventure begin with a step back in time. The 19th century mining boom turned Virginia City into the most important settlement between Denver and San Francisco; and grubby prospectors into instant millionaires. They built mansions, imported furniture and fashions from Europe and the Orient, and helped finance the Civil War… and then went on to build empires around the world. The finest example being San Francisco. Click here for information about Virgina City.
