My World - My City



Images taken on a walk along the Truckee River on a cloudy Saturday..


The top of the Reno Arch, that spans Virginia St..


Looking down the Truckee River towards downtown. this one was taken with my film SLR, the other two, with my 6.2mp digital point and shoot.


Looking across the Truckee River, from Rock park, towards the Atlantis Casino with Slide Mountain in the background. While, as I mentioned, I took this one with my little digital, I also took the same shot with my film SLR, so I'm going to be interested in how they turn out.

I don't think I've seen Reno this lush and green for a long time. All thanks to what is turning out to be the third wettest June on record. I think we are only a tiny fraction of an inch of it being the second wettest..

Now, go to MY WORLD TUESDAY where people from all over our globe , show off their little corner of the world !

I go to Reno once or twice a year and yes never seen it this green too. I haven't explored the Truckee river area either. I think it's time to go. Hows the temp?

Having never been to Reno, I will take your word for the current green-ness of it. And here we've been pretty dry up in the Seattle area.

Terrific shots! Does seem unusual to see such lovely green there, but then I haven't been to the area in quite some time, so I may have just forgotten. Great post!

I am glad that it has been so wet there and it is nice and green...My World is always an adventure to see all the different places.

What a beautiful walk - thanks for taking me along!
I love the last pic.
The cloud looks like it's going to swallow the mountain!

The pictures did turn out very interestingly Karen. Love that one with clouds especially. My heart is closer to nature.

All the pictures turned out great, but I were to pick one, I'd definitely choose the third picture. I love the composition!

And thank you for visiting and commenting on my blog :)

I love the countryside around Reno. Lovely!

The only thing I know about Reno- you can get a quick divorce there. It looks quite lush in places and that top shot just love the bold lettering.

It looks gorgeous and as you say very lush and green. I love the clouds over the mountains shot.

Sydney said...

Wow! Great pictures! I've never been to Reno but it definitely looks like a great place to visit. I love playing tourist in my city, too. We'll be doing that this weekend, when my brother and his wife come to visit!

You live in a very beautiful city!

All that greenery is definitely not something I'd expect to see in Reno. Nice shots.

Barb said...

Hi Karen,
Love your Reno photos - it is unusually green there. We passed through in May on our way to Sacramento.

Leanne said...

Does the Truckee river always flow I know from here when we don't have rain our rivers turn to trickles. Great snaps.

The art of being a top golfer includes correct alignment of the pelvis, Moncler shoulders and neck in order to achieve the magic swing that takes them to the pinnacle of their class. UGG Bags The swing of the golfer is actually pelvic rotation which involves the lumbar spine, the sacrum and most importantly the sacroiliac joint.
