The first recorded journey along El Camino Sierra was by Jedediah Smith in 1826. The trail was in common use by prospectors passing through the area because of the California Gold Rush. It connects Los Angeles to Lake Tahoe & Reno. Today it is better known as the Sierra Highway or Route 395. We thought it would make for a great trip so we set out with the Quintin Co skate team to check it out. From Los Angeles to Mammoth Lakes, Lake Tahoe, Reno & Sacramento follow along on our journey in this 3 part series. Featuring some of the Quintin skate crew including Brett Sube, Danny Hamaguchi, Jordan Maxham and special guest Chris Colbourn.
The next day the crew woke up to a beautiful day in South Lake Tahoe. Checked out the lake and then headed to South Lake Tahoe skatepark. When they got there they were met by one of the locals who runs Skatehouse skateshop. He had a leaf blower and was cleaning the park for us. Jordan & Chris were hyped and started to kill it! Afterwards they got back on the road headed towards Reno. They were going to make a quick pit stop in Carson City but once Danny & Chris got to skating the park it was a wrap.
