|Buttermilk Bend Trail
South Yuba River at Bridgeport
March 18, 2007
This trail frequently serves as a first outing of the year for partner
Barbara and myself. As soon as the February rain lets up, off we go
to the foothills. Bridgeport itself is a California state park featuring
single-span covered bridge in the United States, plus an
historical museum. The trailhead is right across the street.
After ascending the convenient stairway, we spot the omnipresent beachcombers on the south bank.
The South Yuba River
This year, someone has left a calling card on the river bottom, doubtless created on or before February 14.

The return trail
§: The poppies were out in force today; however, it already is a little too hot for many of the flowers. Additionally, the usual trailside waterfalls are already dry. It looks like a dry season ahead.
