    This was a lovely hike and I was pleasantly surprised that the steep downhill portion was not so bad! It HAD dried some by the time we descended and I think that helped... I do have to say that I was er... traumatized (tongue in cheek) to see all of the snow! Thank you Wayne, you always set a great pace and take good care of us all.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
