Sacramento Trip, Saturday…

I'm not going to be horribly verbose this evening as I am exhausted…

The day began with seeing the 9am showing of “Avengers – Age of Ultron” at the Esquire IMAX here in downtown Sacramento with Clinton. Being as this is an actual 70' IMAX screen using two 70/15 projectors running at 48fps to create the 3D, the movie was absolutely mindblowing.

From here Clinton decicded I needed to see Lake Tahoe, so he pointed his CR-V eastward and away we went.

Along the way we ran into a very cool bridge: The Foresthill Bridge, which is 730 feet over the river it crosses… So I opted to walk the length of the bridge, round trip, to get some photos…

From here we pressed on and eventually ended up at Lake Tahoe, where I got to hike around the Tallac historic site for an hour and take pictures of how the 1% lived in 1920. 🙂

And from here we ended up on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe and stopped to have dinner at the Harrah's Casino buffet… Thankfully all I'd had to eat prior to this was some popcorn at the theatre, so I was able to get my money's worth in prime rib and fixins. 😀

Then we drove a hundred miles back to Sacramento, where I am now entirely exhausted and planning to call it an early night.
