This Week’s Photos: Middle Fork of the American RiverPosted April 28, 2006 by Robyn Suddeth
These are a little bit of tease, because the Middle Fork of the American won’t actually be at low enough flows to run until sometime in July. But just to get you thinking about it and to give everyone something to look forward to after all this exciting high water dies down, here are some of Mark Reiner’s best shots from last year’s season on the Middle Fork. I especially like his 2-day shots. This river has some of the best side hikes, creeks, and campsites of any in California, and Mark did a great job of capturing them.
These are actually, by the way, in order of each place’s appearance on the river…
Welcome to your river rafting trip…Now if you could please just carry this boat…
