|When we arrived at the Silver City RV Park outside of Carson City, we really did not know how long we would stay. This is a beautiful area with Lake Tahoe nearby and there is lots to do. Plus, the monitor on my laptop went out and I had to wait for Dell to come out and repair it. We are definitely aware of the smoke from the California wild fires. It has been present all week. One day we visited Virginia City and another day we drove to Reno and did a 10K walk in downtown Reno along the Truckee River. When we were in Virginia City, we were offered a free paddle boat ride on the Dixie II complete with lunch if we went to a 90-minute timeshare presentation. The smoke was bad all week, but by Saturday when we went back to Lake Tahoe for the paddle boat ride, the sky had cleared somewhat.
