Sanderson - Virtual Roadtrip Flyover

Post  trolleydriver on 10/16/2015, 4:45 pm

Here is the flyover of the first "leg" of sanderson's roadtrip of the desert and old west.  This flyover begins at dawn starting at KSAC Sacramento Executive airport, then heads west along highway 50 to highway 49.  It goes south on 49 to 070 Westover-Amador Co airport near Sutter Creek and Jackson CA. It then heads back north to KPVF Placerville airport and west along highway 50 to South Lake Tahoe. We fly over the south end of the lake and then turn to land at KTVL Lake Tahoe airport. I loved doing this flight ... great scenery and would like to make the trip by road someday.

Here is the route. The solid black line is the flight plan and the magenta line is the actual route that was flown.

WowWow that town is right on the edge of the lake.  Hope it doesn't get flooded.  Of course there could be some kind of river to let out the water if it gets any higher.

It's a huge lake at high elevation and hasn't flooded the area for a long time (4000 years) since a major earth quake created a tsunami. They historically another one is due! Bonanza was filmed on the NV (east) side, part of The Godfather and a Place in the Sun. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_Tahoe#Natural_history

Here is Leg #2 of the virtual flyover for sanderson's road trip. This one starts at KTVL (Lake Tahoe - South Lake Tahoe) then follows highway 50 to Carson City then east to Fallon. We continue on to Ely and Delta. At the intersection with I15 at Holden we then turn south to land at U19 (Fillmore).

The flight plan:

TD,  Pretty accurate.  Lots of nothing, only a few small towns, few pinyon and juniper trees, mountain ridges to go around.  The elevation bounced around a mile high, like 3,800 in low spots to 6,400 feet.  High desert.  The lakes shown were very low when we drove by and did not look like they would be good to drink.  At the beginning of this leg, there's a boron mine, and at Ely, there's a copper mine.

This is a graphic of various vegetation at different elevations.
