Pictures of Desolation Wilderness. True to it's name, Desolation Wilderness area is one of the best place for hiking. It's a true wilderness experience, with pristine lakes and spectacular mountains scenery. You can approach the trails through the south, north, east or west side. For our very first time in the area, we chose the trail from Echo Lakes to Lake Aloha.
Pictures of the event: Hot Air Balloon show. The pictures of the balloons say it all. Reno Balloon festival, which is held every year in the 1st or 2nd week of September is one of the very best things that I have seen. The event is held at Rancho San Rafael Regional Park. Huge lighted balloons dancing in the sky at night and then in the morning, is absolutely fabulous. It is a feast to the eyes. website. We stayed at El Dorado Casino and hotel. It was a decent hotel and good to stay for a night. Hot Air Balloon show
