Just north of Peavine, Petersen Mountain tops a small north-south range that is very close to Reno, yet I’ve ignored it for almost four years. This weekend Matt joined us to see what we’ve been missing, and it turns out to be a really nice hike. The range really has two parallel ridges, and the miniature valley in between feels like a land unto itself, totally isolated from the surrounding world.
The remains of a shelter inspire Matt to enact a scene from Naked and Afraid.
The peak log reveals only a handful of visitors each year.
