“One of the great things about Reno is that, since you have the benefits of the city and all the outdoors so close, you can enjoy weekend activities every day.  And, a great thing about having such a fun and interesting job is that when the workday ends at 3:30, I’m usually feeling energized and ready to hit the trails, head to the river, lake, downtown, or pick up on projects.  It’s easy to actively enjoy and make the most of life here. I’m a volunteer ‘hiking buddy’ at the local humane society and after work will often pick up a dog and take it out for the rest of the day.  We’ll hop on a trail into downtown for socializing on the Riverwalk, or into the hills to see the wild horses or the Hunter Creek waterfall. I have beautiful mountain views in every direction, have an easy commute, and can take off right from my yard on my bike, mule, running shoes, or 4×4 onto miles of BLM trails.”
