About to cross the Bay Bridge.  No Hyde Street Ferry nowadays. A tree in beautiful full bloom that we saw in the East Bay. East of Livermore we take the old road over Altamont Pass. - We now feel like we are really on the Lincoln Highway! Many different versions of this sign are used to mark the Lincoln Highway. - In some states they are plentiful; in other states they are few and far between.
A rail line, as well as I-580, share the pass with us, - and occasionally they can be seen. Altamont Pass is very windy, and its many windmills - comprise one of the world's largest wind farms. The Lincoln Highway leaves the Altamont Pass area and - drops to the valley floor. It soon enters the town of Tracy.
The Lincoln Highway ran north-south along what is now California Route 99. Leaving the Sacramento area and heading east, we are again on a two-lane road. Into the Sierra the valley grasslands give way to tall pines. - Now on U.S. 50, we take a break and stretch our legs. The South Fork of the American River ran alongside the road.
