Article about Nevada trail featured in Reno-area magazine

A Reno-area magazine published my article reviewing a hiking trail in west-central Nevada. The article describes the River Nature Trail at Dayton State Park in the July-August 2012 issues of Seniors’ Scoop magazine. “Compared to the sparse upper levels of the park, the riverway is a comparative Eden,” the article says of the trail. “Fremont cottonwoods with their spreading branches grace the river banks. Willows, alders, Russian olive, rushes, sedges, and various grasses further add to the greenery.” You can read the article (and the rest of the magazine) online.
