                Today was a pretty uninspired day, I got up and headed back into Truckee for fuel and a few supplies after googling the my next few day plans and realizing that none of the cities I will be passing through have a larger population than 500 people, meaning gas and food will be expensive. Then I set out north once again, taking HWY-89 through the heart of the high sierras. The elevation continued to drop, from 6500ft near Truckee to around 3000ft where I eventually stopped for the night near the town of Keddie. Found a gravel road and followed it way up into the hills into the forest. The desert is just a thing of the past as I sit surrounded by pine AND fir trees in the forest. We went for a short hike to the top of Monument Peak and then settled in for the night. Tomorrow the plan is Lassen Volcanic National Park about an hour and a half away.
