Last Friday we drove down to Reno to visit our friends Patrick & Liisa and to check out the area. It was a 6-1/2 hour drive and most of it was new territory for Dave. When we arrived Liisa was at work, so we had a nice catch up visit with Patrick for a few hours.
That evening we checked out a local brew pub and the city. It was Hot August Nights weekend, so there were muscle cars and hot rods all over the place. Kelly enjoyed seeing them, but they were just a nuisance to Dave. We walked through the casino area, but neither of us had any desire to check them out.
Saturday Patrick had to work, so Kelly & I, along with Liisa and her Sister Maija drove up to Donner Pass and climbed Donner Peak. It was a beautiful day and a nice hike.
