This continuous week of rain is an unexpected present to those who like to be on the river, rain or shine. Enjoy Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with friends and family and then head to river on Saturday for whitewater fun. Forecasts are calling for rain all week and a nice weekend to follow. Whether you are an adventure junkie or just love nature, the South Fork American river in the winter, as pictured above, is dramatic and beautiful. A hike at the family friendly one mile loop Dave Moore Nature Area is lush and beautiful after rain with amazing mushrooms to observe around every corner.
