about bodey marcoccia – (pronounced: BOH-dee mar-KOH-chuh)
Since receiving my first DSLR camera in 2008, I’ve consistently enjoyed the persuit of photography. I live near Sonora, California with my wife and two sons.
I love landscape photography. Whether it’s Pacific beaches, Scottish plains, Eastern Sierra mountains, or any other number of breathtaking locations I’ve had the fortune of visiting, I always try to capture the one shot that can make someone else feel like they’re right there with me.
I’ve spent the last few years transitioning and building my skills as a portrait photographer, and I’d be glad to work with you to create printed memories that will last a lifetime.
In our initial episode Every Exit up I-80, issue one I left Colfax heading east and only made it as far as Dutch Flat but I had a great time there.
In this episode, I start the journey at Exit 143 Gold Run, went up to Exit 146 Alta Bonnynook Rd. and ended at Exit 148b Baxter.
So, let’s get started.
Heading east on Interstate 80 you often miss Exit 143 Gold Run, (especially if you are driving up from the Bay Area) because just past the Gold Run exit is the first “Rest Stop” on your way up the grade but I do not need the rest stop, at least not yet.
(the photo above is coming back west as I forgot to take this pic on the way up)
Stopping at the end of the exit, I see a uniquely old styled building off to the right. Turns out to be a sports bar and grill Mountain Springs Hitch n Post
My Wife and I moved to Grass Valley in 2011. Up until then the only thing I knew about Grass Valley was that it was two words on the signs on Interstate 80. Since the move, I have had a quest to venture off of every exit on I-80, east of Colfax. With a little help from my wife, kicking me out of the house for the day, I started out on my adventure.
This is the beginning of a three, or four, or more part series. I did not take photos at every exit, or from every exits area, as it just was not that interesting. I am surprised so far with what I have found.
Today’s installment I leave Colfax heading east. I only get as far as the Alta exit as I spent most of the day in Dutch Flat, (In my head I am sounding just like good ole Huell Howser).
