I carefully plan trips to town and select days when I can pack several things in. I tend to favor Tuesdays since that's the day of my monthly book group and also the day that Allison has knitters in her home for a noon knit-in. This is a picture of the Truckee River which runs from Lake Tahoe, through Reno and ends in Pyramid Lake in Paiute land.
sively pulled into the park which is just before the turn off to Allison's. The river is really low this time of year but I love to hear it, no matter what time of year. My little camera urged me to walk a little further and so I did.
I have many fond memories of this river and this route. My running partner Pam and I ran along here lo those many years and knees ago. We had a 12 mile week-end route and this was a part of it. I hadn't planned to drive our old route but due to errands, that's how I ended up going.
Upon closer look, I see a mallard duck. He is blissfully unaware of global warming and lower river flow - just floating in this river, from a mountain lake to a high desert lake. I get really irritated and frustrated with Reno and Nevada government, but geographically this is a remarkable place.
