Sacramento is experiencing an unusually warm autumn. We had no rain in October, nor has there been any thus far in November. While I worry somewhat that we may be headed back into drought, I have been enjoying the beautiful blue skies, and consistent daytime temperatures in the mid seventies.
Debe Maxwell and Margaret Rome have presented the ActiveRain “2019 Thanksgiving Gratitude Challenge.” This Challenge provides us an opportunity to reflect on the blessings we enjoy.
One of many blessing I enjoy, is living in close proximity to The American River Parkway. The Parkway begins a couple blocks from home. Our current temperatures have allowed for pleasant outdoor time. It is my bicycle which often transports me into the Parkway’s natural realm. However, earlier this afternoon, I needed to run an errand in my car. So, rather than return straight home afterward, I parked near the Parkway and took a stroll along its path instead.
This time of year the Salmon make their annual migration up the American River to the Nimbus Fish Hatchery.
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.
It is a perfect time, for a local resident to introduce her pooch to a first time water adventure.
The scene below is near the Old Fair Oaks Bridge, close to Sunrise Boulevard. The bridge today is used for pedestrians and bikes only. It connects the Community of Fair Oaks to GoldRiver/Rancho Cordova.
