AN INTRODUCTION TO RENO, NEVADA

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Reno has a unique old west history.  Here the wagon trains passed by before ascending the Sierra Nevada mountains to California. 

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)The Donner Party didn't fare well and was trapped in 22 foot-deep snow packs and had to resort to cannibalism to survive in Truckee, California 30 miles west of Reno.  It is now a state park and worth a visit.   

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)The transcontinental railroad passes right through Reno and was built back in the 1800's and is still in use today. 

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)About a 25 minute drive South/East is Virginia City, the richest gold and silver mine in the west and the best living ghost town in the world to visit.  Over 400 million dollars in gold and silver were taken from these unusually rich deposits and thousands of miles of tunnels crisscross the small town.  Virginia city financed the civil war and built San Francisco.  A very rich mine! 

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Today, Reno is a gambling city with many casinos and is a critical distribution hub for many industries for the west coast and pacific rim markets.  There is no state taxes in Nevada, so employees benefit; though, the wages are generally lower than in taxable states.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Lake Tahoe resort is only a fabulously scenic 40 minute drive from Reno.  Lots of skiing on the Sierra slopes in winter.  Summer offers the lake, thick pine forests and cool weather conditions.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)The winters are short and mild, temperatures often rising into the high 40's and 50's in the day and above 20 degrees at night.  Spring, summer and fall are fabulous and colorful and mild weather can last all the way into December before winter arrives.

Red Ball.gif (916 bytes)Steamboat Hot Springs If you want to feel good, then check out these individual and private rooms with pure 100% mineral hot springs.  No chlorine added to the water because each tub is cleaned and refilled for each user and nobody in the industry does that!  Mark Twain marveled at the water's power.  I too have used it many times and it is the best hot springs water I have ever used in my national travels.  When I go to Reno, I go to Steamboat Hot Springs.  General Grant also visited these springs.  The old Virginia and Truckee Railroad can be seen behind the building and it was a major stop and destination place.  People have been healed of diseases here!  The volcanic water is loaded with salt minerals that extracts poisons from the body and your skin will peel off from you like no other water will do.  You can smell the volcanic water.  It has a slight sulphur odor and it is hot stuff, very explosive water but it is naturally air cooled before used in the tub.  They also offer facials, messages and they do have outside tubs in a garden setting with sound waves running through the water.  Check it out. It is a a non-profit operation.  You will feel goof for a week after just using the tub for a few minutes.  It is a fact that people who use hot springs have fewer ailments than people who don't.  You'll find out why when you try it and you will be amazed.  Steamboat Hot Springs is located at 16010 S. Virginia, Reno NV 775-853-6600  No appointment needed for soaking in the tub, just walk in.  Open every day, closed on Wednesday.
