North Fork American starts March 2011
On my way down Hwy 80 after a day of snowboarding to enjoy the fresh powder of "Snowmagedon" (the latest and most amazing snow storm in a decade that dropped 2 feet of snow at 3,000 ft. and over 10 ft. on the Sierra summit), I drove down to the Iowa Hill bridge to check out the flows on the North Fork American River.
I found snow at the put-in and a rising river that will be more than ready to deliver solid class 4 whitewater that should easily last through May.
