Wandering the World: American River in California
We happened to stay at a campground on the South Fork of the American River right near Lotus, California. The river was SO COOL!!! First off, it has gold in it. Like, flakes of gold that sparkle in the sun and you can see them! Second, it is great for swimming, rafting and tubing. So while we were there, that is what we did!
I wish I had photos!! I don't. I did take video with the GoPro, but not with my camera or iphone. Either way, we had a blast! And can I tell you how exhausting it is tubing with your kids?! So tiring. Tom stayed on the shore with the babies and I got a nasty sunburn... but it was all worth it!
