The weather around here has been very nice for this time of year at around 78 degrees and since the Mrs's (missus'es ?) were off doing family obligations, the fella's and I went out for a pedal paddle romp on the good ol American River.
This river is only 2 blocks from my house and I have lived this close to it most of my life. Whether swimming, fishing, rope swinging, skimboarding, bridge jumping , rafting, riding bikes, or just skipping rocks, the river has woven itself into a lifetimes worth of fond memories of good times.
There are several long stretches to kayak if you want to launch and head up river before turning around or you can do a point to point stretch of 26 miles with two vehicles. If you are ever in the area be sure to check it out from the seat of your Hobie
Have fun out there
