Love!Photo of the day: We went for a springtime hike up in the Pinenut Mountains (Pinyon Trail, for anyone local looking for a nice walk) this past weekend. What gorgeous views of the mountains this time of year, when there's still snow at the tops. We met a few runners, a few hikers, lots of dogs, and a woman on horseback with 3 happy dogs and a pretty little headstrong pony bringing up the rear. Hiking in Nevada is awesome.
