In the middle of the Sierra Nevada, Highway 50 cuts thru from Placerville over to South Lake Tahoe. The alpine terrain is open all year as snow plows try to keep this route open as the main alternate for Donner Pass, I-80 (to the North). The area is also known as Kyburz CA

This Strawberry CA is one of several in California. There is a Strawberry in Tuolumne Couny, near Pinecrest Lake on Hwy 108 (Sonora Pass), plus a Strawberry Valley CA in Yuba County next to Sly Creek Reservoir.
