Hiking the Hunter Creek Trail


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.<

Climbing 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.

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 […]

Reno Photo of the Week – September 19-26

This shot is such a cool example of that. Taken by BeckImpressions on Flickr during the National Championship Air Races last week, it […]

I always welcome selections, of course. Hope you enjoy it. From Flickr user generallyfriendly. This photo was taken last […]
