THE DAY WE ALMOST DIED

HAHAHA!  NOT REALLY! We joke about this day and call it the "day we almost died" haha.  We're currently in Northern California camping about 30 miles from Kermit's brother Noah and our friend Johnny came out for a visit from Pennsylvania.  None of us had ever been white water rafting and Kermit signed us up for some intense rapids!  We had no idea what we were getting into and that was the fun part!  We took off for an all day raft, 17 miles down the Middle Fork of American River.....

Whew! We made it through this Class 4PLUS rapid called Tunnel Chute without flipping! This was about 5 minutes into the trip.

YANKEE JIMS ROAD // COLFAX CALIFORNIA

"Plunge boldly into the thick of life, and seize it where you will, it is always interesting.”  - Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

The origin of Yankee Jims Road is as intriguing as the name itself.  Running from Colfax to Foresthill, this 13 mile stretch of road weaves through canyons and over the North fork of the American River.  Initially, the road was used by stagecoaches to travel between mining camps.  Today, it's an adventure filled with scenic views. We visit this road every time we're in the area.  We got lucky and hit it in the spring this time when it's lush and vibrant .....
