I am interested in just about everything, but mostly I am looking for wildlife and landscape. I am curious if there are NWR's, state parks, national parks that are within a reasonable distance from the summit for maybe a day trip?
Watch for the Summit announcements and PDF brochure. There are usually some tips on local shooting opportunities near the Summit location. Also try searching the web. If you don't find much for Reno, try Lake Tahoe which is right next door.

Given the timing Tahoe would offer a winter setting that could be very compelling. I would be interested in feedback from anyone who may have shot around Truckee, or any of the ski areas during the season.
