Wagon Train Parade 2014

The 65th annual Highway 50 Wagon Train 
 The first Sunday in June is one of my favorite annual filmmaking adventures because I get to shoot America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride and the Wagon Train parade on the same day.  This year I wanted to get the wagon train in a more rural setting, so instead of walking west to get it passing through South Lake Tahoe (like I did in my 2010 video) , I went East to get it going over the hill into round hill.  To sign up for next year's Wagon Train visit the Highway 50 Wagon Train Association website.

I was pleased to see that a lot of the people in the parade recognized me personally after the video I made last year interviewing them all at the 2013 Wagon Train Rondezvous.  Since Wagon Train is a pretty tight-knit organization I saw many of the same people I interviewed last year including Davy "Doc" Weiser and wagonmaster Mathew Shug.
