I'm still in Reno, Nevada, waiting to get dispatched to a forest fire. It's been pretty quite, and a little boring!
Today, I rode my bike to Releigh Hights Park, not too far from the condo, and went for a nice hike up Peavine Peak. Didn't make it all the way to the top, but it was a great place to hike. Mostly fire roads criss-cross this area. It was a little difficult knowing which road to take to get to the top. The views back to town and back to the condo were great.

I found this scorpion near where I stopped to take a break.

This is from the high point on my hike, looking back towards the condo and North Valley Regional Park.

I left my bike by the three water towers at the end of Wellington, otherwise known as Releigh Heights.

This shows Peavine Peak, 6,600 ft elevation to the NW of Reno.
