Hiking our beautiful area... Lake Clementine from the American River Canyon

My idea of a good time is to visit someplace beautiful and to get out and experience it physically. Whether that be by foot, bike or whatever... I love the fresh air, the beauty of nature and the tranquility of silence.  Working with as much stress and details that Real Estate involves, it is a NEEDED REQUIREMENT for me to unwind and run away to a beautiful area, surrounded by nature. We are lucky to live in such a place that offers many hiking trails nearby.  

When I moved here from Lake Tahoe I was draw to the Rivers all over and spent many Summers down relaxing and enjoying some peaceful times soaking in the area's beauty. I love to travel near and far and take in all this earth gives to us that we can sometimes take for granted. Whether it be close by or Bodega, Santa Cruz, San Francisco or Napa or Lake Tahoe, we have many choices. When I lived in Maui I relocated twice back from maui one of the biggest reasons were because of my loss of visiting these places as easy as jumping in my car. So I never take them for granted anymore. 
I hope I can convince you to get out there and hike whether it be a small walk or a more courageous hike it doesn't matter, you can even make it a short bike ride either in Tahoe, Napa Silverado Trail or my other yearly visit to San Francisco to bike over the Golden Gate with some of my best friends. It is truly one of the things I really look forward to with one of my special girl friends. I have been making that trek for over 10 years now and love it just as much as the first time. 

Nice trail clearly marked and wide enough  as well 

This hike I did last weekend is a simple stroll along the American River in Auburn, parking at the second bridge, and then hiking back underneath the Foresthill Bridge. I have been coming here since I was 18 years old when I first moved to Auburn from living in Lake Tahoe. Many memories with my kids here when they were young. We started hiking with the m here at just 4 and 6, and it's super cool that it is still one of their favorite places to return to as well.  Here are some photos of the hike. This goes back to Lake Clementine dam and it is a bit of an incline so it is a great workout.  I love it!  Always a bit sore and that is a great thing!! Hope you enjoy and let me know if you venture down. Can pack a lunch and stop and swim as well.

Happy Trails  Leslie ~
