Truckee River

Truckee River
Looking upstream to the Center Street Bridge in downtown Reno, Nevada, USA. The next bridge upstream is Virginia Street. Virginia St. is the main north-south thoroughfare in Reno, and is now the US 395 business route. Legend has it that back in the 1920s, when Reno (and Nevada) became notorious for quickie divorce laws (quickie by the standards of the time, anyway), the newly "freed" would toss their wedding rings into the river off the Virginia Street bridge!

This reminds me very much of the Miljacka River in downtown Sarajevo.
