Hunter’s Peak

Photo Album

A Thanksgiving Day hike to Hunter’s Peak for some geocache maintenance.  The new Sun Valley Regional Park picnic area and trailhead is very nicely done. This track mostly follows the many trails and roads in the area, but has a couple of cross-country segments. There are many ways to the top of the peak.

Peavine Peak SE

Mt. Rose from Peavine Peak SE

A nice hike on the southeast side of Peavine Peak with J. and M., overlooking Reno with this amazing view of Mt. Rose (above). Parked on the main road to the peak and did a loop hike. On the way back we hit a couple of geocaches (below).

Bordertown Geocaching

It’s taken a while to get this posted. M and I went geocaching in the Bordertown/Dog Valley area, just inside California northwest of Reno. Found two caches on a nice day to be out.
