    Interesting in that this stuff keeps resurfacing. It was too brief or I was not able to access the rest of it even though I clicked on Facebook.

    twinarchers I wanted to read more too – Reno is but 2 1/2 hours West of where I call home, in Northern Nevada.

    I did locate this, a larger version of the photo making it easier to see, plus more from the book it is in:

    Thanks for the great additions, TZ!

    It would be Flynntastic if you could make it over to Reno to retrace Flynn’s hoofsteps, and those of Diablo, his uncooperative parade horse.

    I believe the Nevada Historical Society has some info and imagery::
