Reno, Nevada to Sacramento, California 8.1.2012


Morning in Reno, we check out of the Siena Hotel, drive through Truckee

and the Nevada-California border on our way to Sacramento

where we stay on the Delta King, in Old Sacramento, and walk the area

including the California State Capitol Museum and Capitol Park, and K Street Mall.

The Truckee River splits Reno in two.

In the night, taggers hit the building across the river.

The real reason we set out on this expedition,

the Gregory Euclide: Nature Out There exhibit at the Nevada Museum of Art, Reno.

No photos allowed!

However, Euclide’s work may be seen on his website

and the band Bon Iver used a Euclide for their 2011 release, Bon Iver.

As well, the Wilbur D. May Sculpture Plaza is outside the Nevada Art Museum,

so we took some shots of the outdoor sculptural works.

(Note to art patrons: No overpowering fragrances such as perfumes or aftershaves!

No one wants to smell you while they appreciate art!)
