The weekend was rather eventful, the most important was saying goodbye to Subaru, our puppy. You see, we didn't ever get to keep him, as he was a Guide Dogs For The Blind puppy that we were raising. The whole of the last 13 months, we always knew we'd have to give him up, but that knowledge was always the can we kicked a bit further down the road for another day, and another day, and another day. Well, we finally ran out of days. My son and wife took him back to the campus this weekend. It was difficult to say goodbye, but we are consoled (not immediately, but with time it will happen) with the knowledge he will be making someone's life immeasurably better. Who knows, we may yet meet again, Sube - you'll be someone else's best friend and constant companion. You rock, LBD*
Very similar in terms of total elevation gain and distance, but far less scenic. Peavine Peak has little vegetation taller than a mid-sized sagebrush, and the view of Reno - usually good - was marred by the inversion and lack of winds. I was glad to be above the schmutz in the air. So, no pics, just an elevation profile and route to share.
