This past Friday was Nevada Day, a day when we celebrate our statehood. What better way to honor our state than to appreciate its natural beauty?! I (with 6 month old fetus in tow in my belly) went with a friend, who had her 16 month old daughter in a backpack. We tried out the Galena Creek Trail (to access, take Mt. Rose Highway to Callahan, turn South, and follow Callahan until it dead ends).
This trail had a nice, gradual slope, was was perfect for both of us, considering the “loads” we were bearing. The Fall leaves were amazing, and the weather was perfect — not too hot, and not too cold.
This really is one of the best times to hike in the Reno-Tahoe area. Come see for yourself!
