This is part VII of my series of photo blogs detailing my recent trip to the Reno/Sparks area.
These shots were all taken the afternoon of August 2 in the Downtown Reno area. In downtown Reno, you can walk along the Truckee River and wander through several small parks. They have really upgraded the area and made it look nice, unfortunately, the homeless think so too and the area is quite a draw for them, much like many other downtown areas around the country.
|Several years ago they re-did the river downtown and added all sorts of features to create rapids, pools , etc.|
|Truckee River, looking NW from downtown Reno.|
|Several little motels from years ago remain in this area. Primarily along 4th St, which is Old US 40.|
|Tubing and rafting down the Truckee is always a great summer past time.|
|You meet the nicest, cleanest, most upstanding citizens downtown!!!!|
|Look close, this guy actually has a real pacifier in his mouth!!!!!!!|
|The old Riverside Hotel/Casino. This old relic has been saved from destruction and revitalized this part of town as lofts and small stores.|
|Along the river seems to be a favorite hangout for the homeless.|
|She wasn't swimming, she was taking a bath!|
As always, thanks for looking and remember, clicking any of the photos will bring up larger, higher-quality versions......
