On our way back from a family funeral in Ripon we decide to sample some of the California central valley outdoors on our way home. I choose “training hill” outside Auburn, which looks like it gets some good elevation in quickly. The American river is an amazing deep azure here. There is green grass and big oak trees – feels like a foreign country to me now! I manage the whole loop barefoot, spring must be here!
