With my glass of coffee at 7AM the wild horses came to say “good morning “ and drink some water from the bucket that was waiting for them,it is a magical sight and became a routine,they even let me get closer and I liked it.
We packed a picnic basket and drove just an hour South to a small attractive Genoa town .
Historic Genoa, Nevada, is nestled at the base of the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Range, just 25 minutes east of beautiful Lake Tahoe, and one hour south of Reno.
It is home to Mormon Station Memorial State Park which commemorates the settlement of Nevada in 1851, when the first permanent trading post was established by a group of Mormon traders from Salt Lake City.
Genoa’s natural beauty and historic charm still beckon travelers and local wildlife. It is not unusual to spot mule deer as they come down from the forested area on the west side of Genoa and cross local roads to graze on vegetation or fields along the Carson River Valley to the east of Genoa.
The small town of approximately 250 residents and many local amenities and shops, welcomes visitors for a day trip or longer restful stay.
The town being the first Nevada settlement has a museum with 2 floors proudly reviles some of the local history .
There are many hiking trails with different levels but most are winding up towards mountain peaks and better taken in cooler weather as there is no shade on the trails.
A French restaurant is run by a Belgium chef serving only from 5PM and it is quit a success what shows that maintaining good standards pays back.
We spent the evening in Carson City attending Hot August Jazz Week and making the best of it, first we listened to Red Tango music by very talented musicians in down town that went on from 5:30PM for an hour.
and from 7PM till 10PM we had fun listening to Open Jazz Jam in Sassafras Eclectic Food Joint,it was a great performance , we danced and had a great time.
My Tahoe Blue that I had for the first time was exactly what I needed (Rod did the driving home) to complete this another fantastic day
There is no dole minute and we try to use the time we have in the best way possible,till now it works just fine.
