On Pi day, 3/14/15 Kate and I hiked to the Emerald Pools on the Yuba River, off the Bowman Lake Rd, with Janelle and Stephen. The weather was high 60s, but because of the drought the river was much lower than normally would be at this time. Plus there normally would have been snow at this level. We bushwacked it first to the canyon then to the pools and big waterfall. I was so glad to get back into the mountains. Everyone loved it including Ben and Biggs.
Quick rundown: Grew up in Lombard, Illinois, went to Arizona State University, worked as a CPA with Arthur Andersen & Co, then Laventhal and Horwath, then Rolling Stones, then Heron International, then Goodby Berlin and Silverstein in San Francisco. Moved to the foothills in 1990 and traded futures and designed websites. Married to Kate Stewart, now living in Colfax, CA. We have six grandchildren. I enjoy camping in our RV, hiking, kayaking, fishing, droning and cross country skiing Also conga drumming, photography and dogs.

God what gorgeous country. Looks like the hiking would be very difficult. Dogs sure seemed to be having a great time. I wish I could visit beautiful country like this.
Trail, what trail….we don’t need no stinking trail. Nice!
Looks like a really fun hike. Beautiful pictures !
You are all so brave to climb through that rocky terrain. Looks quite excitingly dangerous.
Everyone seemed to have had a wonderful time including Ben and Biggs. Don’t think I
could have done it, but I would have liked to try.
The true natural wonder of it all! And terrific how you captured all the you-should-pardon-the-expression:aspects of the journey!
And ditto your Mom’s comment and the others’, except I Know I could Not have done it – nor would I have even dared to try.
