Without a doubt, this autumn in the Greater Sacramento Region has been one of the more pleasant in memory.
The spring and summer months had seemed so very busy. There were improvements made to my home and joyful family encounters, which moved time along at break-neck pace. My bicycle, which often transports me into nature’s world, a couple blocks from home, was neglected more than deserved.
The Salmon are making their annual migration up the American River to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery. So, during a quiet hour this week, I dusted off the bike seat, and headed for the Parkway, to see what wonders would transpire.
The river is quieter in November and December. The raucous activity of fisherman, so prevalent in October, is absent. The Salmon are protected in their migratory run, from November 1st thru December 31st.
A perfect time, for a local resident to introduce her pooch to a first time water adventure.
The scenes below are at the Old Fair Oaks Bridge, near Sunrise Boulevard. The bridge today is used for pedestrians and bikes only. It connects the Community of Fair Oaks to GoldRiver/Rancho Cordova.
