When I last posted I commented on how great the weather has been for January around Reno... cold mornings with day time temperatures in the 60s make for great hiking. Mid January turned out another another spring like day and hiking buddy, Sandi, and I headed over to Mt. Davidson which overlooks the old mining town of Virginia City. Mt. Davidson is a short steep climb from Virgina town center and rewards one with vista views of mountains to the north and Washoe Valley and Washoe Lake to the south. This was one hike I would not want to do in the Summer, as the hike was steep and without any shade.
