Floating down the emerald river

As we floated down the Truckee River, i realized there really is nothing quite like floating down a mountain river with friends and some refreshing cold beer. Ok so the Truckee river, which flows from Lake Tahoe, through the canyon past Sqaw Valley, isn’t exactly a physically challenging one, but that’s the point. As you float through the canyon, you are completely absorbed, soaking in the beautiful scenery along the way. The weather, warm but not too terribly hot, is a welcome relief to the scorching temperatures of the 100 degrees of the Valleys. As you wind your way through some mild ‘rapids’ there really is plenty of time to relax in between. It can become a bit busy, but its a great way to make new friends along the way. At the end of the run, is a very cool bar and grill, where it all comes together. The river is about a 3 hour drive from San Francisco, and well worth the drive

Till next time, enjoy it out there
