Date: July 10, 1927 Weather: Mountain then HOT-- then sea air -
Place: Berkley/Oakland, California From Tahoe Lake, Cal
Via: Steep wooded mountain pass and concrete roads
Impressions: The drive today was beautiful and decidedly thrilling and scenic. We traveled along a beautiful mountain ridge of the Sierras being able to look far beneath in the emerald waters of the mountain lakes or at the beautiful cascades and cataracts of the mountain streams. Everywhere were tall pine. It began to get hot near Sacramento and everything was dry. We noticed the prevalence of palm trees on the front lawns also large rose and geranium bushes. Orchards of apricots and plums were on every side and we bought a large basket full for 25c.Near Berkley we noticed the damp sea air. It is quite cool here.
