It won't be long before those beautiful spring day start popping up.
Here in Northern California we have had a very wet winter. With the snow pack we have in the Sierras, I think the rivers will be running high until July. If we get some early hot weather, that could change, but in a normal spring I don't think we will be getting in the water until around July.
That means we have four months of descent weather to do some hiking, exploring, treasure hunting, detecting, just getting out and taking in all that is wonderful about life.
With all the hustle and pressures of everyday life, a trip to the hills on a beautiful spring day is just good for the soul.
I don't know about you, it might be a bit early, but I'm going to get my pack ready so I don't miss a day!
