Another Snow Day
A quick drive outside of Reno is a great little place to snowshoe, especially if one is feeling a bit intimidated to drive the winding, slushy roads at higher elevation to get to the groovier spots by Lake Tahoe. We started up the mountain, but after a few gusts of wind blew snow and blocked our view, we decided maybe hiking on a ridge might not be a good idea. We opted to be cautious and were rewarded by a lovely hike through the pine forest at Galena Creek Park. It was early in the day so we had the place mostly to ourselves. The snow was powdery and deep. I loved the sound of the snow shoes crushing the snow as my they sunk down deep into the white softness.....in some places sinking up to my knees. We did not have a view of Lake Tahoe, but we did have a lovely view of the snow-covered mountains...and a view of a bridge on I-395.
