I woke up Sunday to a freezing cold morning. Literally. 32 degrees in Folsom. With snow expected later in the evening. But that didn't deter our hardy group of paddlers heading down to the Cosumnes River Preserve for the day. And once we arrived at the Preserve the sun was out and it was warming up - at list a little bit.
The purported goal of the paddle was to do some bird watching. In particular to catch the sand hill cranes on their winter layover. But with the cold and approaching storm the animals had the sense to stay hunkered down and out of sight even if us people did not. But regardless it was a nice enjoyable paddle and everyone managed to stay warm enough while paddling - cold starts not withstanding.
