Spring is officially here!

 


I know for some of you the fact that spring is officially here comes with dreams of warmer weather and no more snow! Here in California we have been experiencing too much warm spring weather and sure wish we had had some winter rains.
 
But spring is in the air along the American River, where I have been kayaking and photographing for the past 18 months. The birds are starting to nest and I really hope there are some otter and beaver babies on the way!
 
I have seen and experienced so much on the river lately. Here are a few recent images.
