The Twaddle-Pedroli Ranch is a lovely, old property in Washoe Valley, just south of Bowers Mansion.  The ranch was purchased in 1869 for $5000 by John Twaddle.  A few of the original buildings still stand, including a large horse  barn, chicken house, and a beautiful stone dairy house.  The property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. 

What to bring:

  • camera
  • painting gear
  • drinking water
  • lunch or snack
  • cell phone
  • artist umbrella, hat, sunglasses, hiking boots
  • carts might be a little awkward - this is old farm land we will be walking around weeds and irrigation ditches, totebags or backpacks might be easier.
  • Forecast calls for sunny day, highs in the high 60's.  
The mountains will have snow on them and the fields will be greening up.
