Let’s stay closer to home this week so we can better judge air quality (hope for the best!). Plan to be in the water at 9:30 at Willow Creek on Lake Natoma, then we can decide whether to go upstream or down. State Parks pass or $10 at the iron ranger
Meet at the Fish Hatchery and ride to the Mimosa House for brunch. About 24 miles round trip.
Let’s visit an all-time favorite, the Cosumnes River Preserve. Wednesday’s forecast is for a high of 101, but not until 4 p.m. Morning should be pleasant: 75 o at 9 a.m. rising to 95o by 1p.m. Plenty of time for a nice outing, so let’s plan to be in the water at 9:30.
The Visitor’s Center is not open, so be sure to bring your kayak carts, and if any of you have an extra that you’re willing to share it would be appreciated. We can have lunch on the shady deck at the Visitor’s Center, so be sure to take your lunch along. The restrooms are open.
Directions: Head South on I-5; exit at Twin Cities road and go left to Franklin Blvd; turn right. The address of the Visitor’s Center (parking lot and restrooms) is 13501 Franklin Blvd., Galt. Phone 916-684-2816.
Meet at Five Points at 8:15, depart at 8:30 to a favorite breakfast spot, Brookfields. About 20 miles on the bike trail.
Since we traveled a way last week, let’s visit Negro Bar this week. This is the State Park with entrance from Greenback Lane. State Park pass or $10 gets you in. Please do your best to arrive in time to be in the water at 9:30.
The weather forecast is for a mild 85 degrees at 1 p.m., with a 6 mph breeze from the South.
Club GM meeting at Mission Oaks Community Center (Gibbons Park) and as Zoom
Let’s change things up a bit and meet at Nimbus Flat (Lake Natoma, near the Aquatic Center) at 4:00 p.m. for an afternoon paddle and potluck afterwards. At this time the forecast indicates breezy conditions, but we can hang out in the shelter of the dredger ponds if necessary. Plan to be in the water at 4:30, launching from the grassy area across from the Aquatic Center. After loading our boats, we’ll drive to the next parking lot where there is a large picnic area.
I will bring plates, napkins and plastic utensils. Please bring food to share and a serving utensil. Bring your own drink, and remember alcohol isn’t permitted.
State park pass or $10 entry fee. The park closes at 9 p.m.
