Summer is finally here!!! Hope everyone had the opportunity to make it down to the Reno River Festival this last weekend! It was great to see the number of people there, as well as the level of competition, and to top it off the weather was perfect. Hopefully it inspired some of you to take Kayak lessons. I actually learned last year in the kayak park and have floated the Truckee River 4 times since then- it’s a great sport, a little scary at first but really fun. Reno is very lucky to have the kayak park in such a convenient location and there are a couple of great schools, such as DSK that can teach you everything you need to know to get started.
If kayaking isn’t your thing then get out your bike and get outside because this is the best time of year- before it gets too hot. Keystone canyon or White Creek are both really good trails or if you want something a little more mellow, the path along the Truckee River is always a good choice. Anyway, hope everyone has a great weekend- have fun and enjoy all that Reno has to offer!
