Franktown Creek Waterfall

When you mention Nevada and its terrain, most people think of hot, dry, flat land with desert-like plants. Well, that picture above is a couple miles from my house in Washoe Valley near the Toiyabe Forest. Almost in my backyard. 

My son and I made the trek to it the first spring I lived here. Not a bad hike, but unfortunately not one I’ve been able to repeat since my hip was injured. It is a beautiful area with several types of wildflowers. Not a dry, dusty patch of ground anywhere!

Even though the trek to the waterfall is out of my reach I can still enjoy breathtaking views (and not a single casino!) in Northern Nevada:
