You may have World Cup glory on your brain but your body is thinking about what you'll do after the game is over.
Celebrate with a deeply satisfying plunge into a cold river!
It is officially summer time and triple-digit temperatures abound so it's time to seek a cool place to swim. We've got so many great rivers running down from the Sierra Mountains - with names that trace our history - American, Mokelumne, Tuolumne, Stanislaus, Merced, Kern - get out a map, put your finger down and get out of town!
You have a couple more weeks of decent flow volumes before the drought really slows things down. Go find a shade tree, rope swing and sandy beach!
Two last words - be careful!
