Cross Peak is a short little hike in west Reno that you can do in an hour or so. The peak itself overlooks Caughlin Ranch and has a bit of a steep final section, but not too much for someone who gets out on a trail every now and then. The peak itself isn’t named […]
I took Sunday morning to hike Hunter Creek Trail to the falls with my daughter. Just a couple of weeks ago, there was a fire in the area that grew bigger than I ever thought it would. That shut the trail down for a while. In fact, we were supposed to go last weekend, but the trail closure forced me to switch this trip with the trip up Mount Rose.<
I’ve wanted to get out and climb Mount Rose for a few years. Knowing the round trip was about 10 miles made it seem like something that was possible, even if you moved at a slow pace. It would also signify a decent accomplishment. In my case, it’s the first real ascent I’ve made and the highest elevation I’ve reached outside of an airplane.
This is the first part in what will be a brief, but ongoing series of posts about living in a city and raising livestock. Parents are faced with a lot of challenges. Most of them involve decisions that will seemingly affect a kid’s life forever at the expense of something in the short term. Many […]
This photo, entitled “downtown reno” in manybits‘s Flickr stream, caught my eye for a few reasons. First, the recent trend of everything old is new again resonates with me. I have a lot of fun with some of the applications on my phone–taking pictures and tweaking them to make them look aged. Second, I like, […]
Entitled “Reno, NV,” this photo from Gérald Verdon Photo on Flickr (view more of his photos on ambilux.com)caught my attention for a couple of reasons. First, I love the composition. Second, it’s the King’s Inn. The King’s Inn represents an awful lot about Reno right now, from the inability of the city’s government to completely […]
I am a sucker for the Canon EF-S 10-22mm lens. I have one myself and think it’s capable of some outstanding effects. It also handles color saturation in different light real well. This shot is such a cool example of that. Taken by BeckImpressions on Flickr during the National Championship Air Races last week, it […]
I love this. It’s called “702-324-1315” and it’s by Troy Holden on Flickr. The older limo set in front of a motel with brightly colored doors and trim is about as Downtown Reno as it gets. Perfectly captured and the little turning of the limo’s wheels inward is a nice touch.
