Sierra Canyon Hiking Group Monday Hike East of Reno

Duke and I hiked with the Sierra Canyon hiking group on Monday for the first time in over a month. The group has done quite a bit of hiking east of Reno but this was our first hike in that area. It was also the first time I have been the only woman on a hike. Usually the women outnumber the men but on this hike there were six men and me. We started just a little bit north of the Mustang exit off of Interstate highway 80 (exit 23). and hiked about 2.5 miles up a dirt road to some towers with a great view of Reno. It was a cool and rainy day, really a perfect day for hiking. The elevation gain was 1100 feet so it was a good workout. If you would like to see all of the pictures from the hike you can see them on Flickr here.
