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.
