A Few Landscapes of Reno – Virginia City Area

Taken on Saturday, March 12th, 2011.

A view looking down Six Mile Canyon and Sugar Loaf from Virginia City.

Looking at Slide Mountain and Mt. Rose from Gieger Grade.

Also from Gieger Grade ~ Looking down at Reno…which is really, really, really sad for me…I remember when all of those houses weren’t there (from Rattlesnake Mountain, middle right side, to the bottom of the picture).

I'm Michelle and live in Northern Nevada ~ beautiful mix of high desert and the Sierra. While I work at the University, I'd rather take pictures, play with fountain pensioned ink, garden, cook, craft and make quilts. :)

    I too miss the open fields 😦 Every time I drive pass the Del Monte area I think of how open it used to be.

    *sigh* Urban/suburban sprawl, always sad when it consumes our pretty bare spaces.

    Beautiful photos though!
