A couple of weeks ago Duke, Vicky and I spent a day checking out some of the backroads east of Reno. We had such a wet winter we wanted to see the water in Stillwater National Wildlife Refuge, The Carson River and Lahontan Reservoir. We started out the day with a great breakfast at Cafe Adele’s in Carson City. You can see the Google Map of our route here.
The major highlights of the trip were the birds and wildlife we saw. Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture of the pronghorn antelope. In a few places in the wild life refuge there were swarms of mosquitos. You can see a couple of them on the window glass in the big picture below.
It was a beautiful day and a fun drive that I think we will do again.
