Love those pics!

What a view from Monitor Pass, eh?

Virginia City, CA was on today's agenda, here's the County Court House:





The building also accommodates most of the County's administration and a small museum in what use to be the County jail.



Most of the cells now have their own themed exhibit, eg. churches, cemeteries, hotels, brothel, etc .....

I have around 150 pics of Virginia City, I think a separate thread is warranted.

Can you do me a favour and pop into the Tahoe Mountain Brewing Company in Tahoe City, and grab me a 6 pack of their Passion Pale Ale.

(Coincidentally, google photos threw up some memories on my phone today and reminded me that 2 years ago today I was in Tahoe City drinking the above mentioned amber fluid at the above mentioned establishement.
