On this spectacular weekday afternoon after having a delicious lunch with a friend there were a few moments to take in this view of the Truckee River. I’m sitting in the same place yet the snapshots are in opposite directions. The water flow was like white noise that you drift off to in a dream state. The clean, crisp afternoon air filling my lungs with breaths of delight. Calmness took over and encapsulated me.
At 121 miles long the Truckee River originates from Lake Tahoe and slithers it’s way through the Interstate 80 corridor between Truckee, California and Reno, Nevada. It is the centerpiece attraction for downtown Reno sans the casinos. The past several years have seen a big development to increase its appeal to both tourists and locals alike. You can find concerts during the non winter months and many high end restaurants or smaller places with delicious food to take with you as you stroll either side of the river walk.
Other numerous activities along the river include but are not limited to river surfing, rafting, fishing and spectacular outdoor photography opportunities.
After leaving Reno, Nevada the Truckee River eventually filters out into the legendary Pyramid Lake while also providing water for farmers in the outlying metro area.
