ABOUT US - - - - - -

      At nearly a mile high, Reno and Sparks are nestled at the base of the eastern slope of the mighty Sierra Nevada Mountains.   Lovely sunny weather with low humidity enhances the snow covered mountain peaks, which act as sentinels over the cities and its beautiful, meandering Truckee River and emerald green golf courses in the meadows below.  Summer days can be very hot, but they are tempered by the coolness of the high desert evenings.  

             Lake Tahoe, which sparkles like a clear blue gem, is a one hour drive through inviting picturesque scenery. 


Carson Valley with its mighty ranches and mountain sentinentals shows a different side of the high desert.

Virginia City, built on the side of a mountain and less than one hour from Reno, takes you back to the old West...to "the way it was"... with narrow streets, wooden sidewalks, shops and saloons that have bars and chandeliers dating back to the 1800's.

                      Old mining shafts dot the hillsides surrounding Virginia City, reminding us of days long gone.
