Hike: San Rafael by Basque Monument

Hard to believe these pictures are from Reno, isn't it? This is a lovely little canyon we (the Sierra Club) hiked in this evening. I've been there a few times, but never knew how far back the trail went. Wow. Absolutely beautiful. Of course, we had to share with mountain bikers, but since they helped build the trail, that's only fair. We went 3.7 miles in 1:43 with less than a 200 foot elevation change. It was a bit slow for such a flat hike, but considering that the heat wave hasn't broken yet, I didn't mind one bit.

No weight training today; my father needed help. I'll really have to make up for it on Thursday.
