My husband and I will be arriving in Reno Friday, April 20, for a weeks vacation. We will fly out of Las Vegas Saturday, April 28. The only definite plans we have is April 20 in Virginia City, April 21 and 22 in North Lake Tahoe and April 26 and 27 in Las Vegas. The rest of the days and nights we would like to spend driving and seeing as much as possible between South Lake Tahoe and Vegas. While I realize this may not be the best time to travel in the mountains, my husband loves them and has never been in this area and I'm hoping for some tips on how to make the most of this trip. We know some of the roads will not be open yet and are thinking that traveling on the west side of the mountains and crossing at the north and south ends might get us the most bang for our time. Any suggestions?
