So yesterday it was pretty warm here in Sacramento, and I decided to go to the river with some friends. It was 5 of us crammed into this Chevy Malibu (5 BIG girls) lol, and my friend's a/c doesn't work, so it was TOASTY! We do have a lake nearby, Folsom, but the water is warm like a hot tub! Noooo thanks lol. Plus it costs like 10 or 15 bucks to park, and is only open till 9pm. Nah. I will take the American River ANYDAY. The water is ICE cold from snowmelt, and the current is pretttty darn strong plus it's only 5 bucks parking and you can stay till 10pm. When we got there a few people still hung out on the beach, but then we saw like 2-3 beer cans floating down the river from a bag these folks had tossed out. After griping loudly about them, we walked over and intentfully picked up the garbage and tossed it in a nearby can, making sure the litterbugs watched the entire time. The water was totally clear, and there were a ton of skipping rocks. Reeds came out from either side of the beach, which blocked the current so kids could play as well. Once you passed the reeds, the current was definately there! I had been having a rollercoaster sort of weekend, so this was a good break. Although the entire time I kept checking my cell phone to see if my Wyandotte Lady had called. No such luck.. I snapped some pictures, enjoy! Also respond here with what YOU do in the summer for fun. Camping? Lake? River? Hunting? Anything really flies. View from the bridge Bridge View from our beach This is my house that I want sooo badly Probably shouldn't have chickens here though lol!
