The South Yuba River is so special. I love the peacefulness of walking along the trails, swimming in the refreshing pools, and reflecting along the banks of this amazing gem in our community.
Who wouldn’t love a gorgeous four-seasons river celebrated by an awesome community?
We love the Yuba! Thanks, Erin, for all you do to promote SYRCL.
Great post Erin! Thank you!
It was to be the sheer beauty and the river and surrounding’s colors.
thanks Erin, for all you do to support SYRCL and the Yuba!
I love how clean and clear the water is, and how there is a swimming hole for every mood and circumstance. Whether you want a fun day with the family, a group of like minded spiritual people enjoying the outdoors sans clothing, or a quiet reflective spot to meditate and enjoy the water by yourself you can find it on the Yuba.
The Yuba is our city’s lifeblood. I head to the river for swimming, hikes and just soaking in how beautiful it is!
Thanks Jenny! What’s your favorite river hike?
So tough to pick…locally it’s Edwards Crossing but overall it’s Buttermilk Bend!
I first started loving the magical Yuba River 40 years ago, drawn to its emerald pools and giant boulders. Each time I explore it, I fall in love more deeply.
It’s magical for sure…. thanks for the comment, I’m glad it’s a lifetime connection.
I love the Yuba for it’s beautiful refreshing waters and the magical experience of jumping into the cool water on a hot day!
Sure looks like a fun event!
