Duke and I live in an over 55 community in Reno, Nevada called Sierra Canyon. A lot of people in our community love to hike , ski, and snowshoe. Many of the skiers have skied 50 or more days this year. Although I don’t ski I learned to snowshoe and I love it.
Monday was our last snowshoeing hike of the year. We went to the same place that we went on New Year’s Eve last year – Andesite Peak. The snow was a bit slushy but there was still lots of it. The hike starts just across from Boreal Ski Resort (Boreal is now closed for the season) at the summit of Donner Pass off of interstate 80.
The wind was blowing at the top but the views are breathtaking.
We had a lunch this time on an exposed log.
Next Monday we are going to the American River canyon, at least 6000 feet lower elevation.
If you would like to see all of my pictures from the Andesite Peak hike you can see them here.
