Sunday morning hike

The temperature was perfect for hiking this morning, as I joined a few fellow nature lovers from FOLFAN (Friends of Lakes Folsom and Natoma) on a trek to Avery’s Pond and Miners Ravine on the North Fork of the American River. We were led by the group’s vice-president Linda McDonald. Even though I’ve done this hike a number of times in the past, it was great to hear Linda sharing her knowledge of the area’s rich history.

Even the horses’ watering trough was bone dry!
