Our brewing club had it's 15th annual Octoberfest at Washoe Pines ranch. Forty thousand Harley-Davidson riders were in Reno for 'Street Vibrations', so it made a perfect opportunity to get outta Dodge for some quiet fun.
A nice quiet country road....mooorwbadley

During the Comstock gold era days in the 1860's somebody had a little too much money. They spent 200K to furnish it then fell on hard times. You can say 'they don't build 'em like they used to' when you look at this place.
The cabin of Will James.......rwbadley

Built in 1927 by author and artist Will James. He wrote a number of books about cowboy and country life of the time.

The place became a divorce ranch in the 1930's (Nevada divorce law made it 'easy' for out of state divorce), then in the 60's became a research camp for local plant and animal studies. Now it's mostly private homes and cabins.
Inside, the old fireplace is quite a centerpiece...rwbadley

This is one of the local turkey vultures. They are really a big bird with an enormous wingspan.
And a few kegs of homebrew....rwbadley
