South Fork American River

South Fork American River
At the put-in point where California Route 193 crosses the river. Kayakers and boogie-boarders are surfing in the little rapids. I'm taking pictures--I couldn't make the boogie board work to save my life! This is probably the most popular river run in the Sacramento area and indeed the whole Mother Lode country.

Thanks, everyone! Yeah, it was not exactly the wilderness experience-- ;)
Near where this run usually ends, outside the village of Coloma, there's a rapid alongside a popular park--so you have lots of spectators if you screw up your run! Coloma, btw, is the site of Sutter's Mill, where gold was discovered in 1848. There's a state historical park there.
