Pure Sierra Snowmelt   2 comments


Lake Natoma in Gold River, CA is a dammed up portion of the beautiful American River. It is a great spot to swim, kayak, row, etc. I took my first plunge of the season yesterday. The water was 54 degrees so the hands and face get a little cold. We have had lots of snow in the Sierras this year and the river and lake are high! The water is pure COLD snow melt and the visibility is pretty dang good. A family of ducks were chasing me on the homestretch but I just nudged them at the line!
