The Adventurers had decided this weekend would be “time off.” But just like yesterday when they went on a long paddle (to find the not hard to find Google barge), they spring weather beckoned today and they drove up to the Sierra foothills with The Mag and Annabelle in tow for a hike at Cronan Ranch.
Located near Pilot Hill, it’s a near perfect foothills outing for winter or spring, when it shows of the landscape in an emerald green color. An extra bonus for The Mag in particular was lots of running water as well as a dip in the American River. Annabelle was less enthusiastic but a real trooper. Plus, she struck a “Majestic Poodle” pose…
