Caples Creek Hike

The Sacramento County Hikers led by Rich Blackmarr tackled a beautiful trail along Caples Creek in the High Sierra Mountains.  There were two options - a 6 mile out and back along Caples Creek or a 10 mile loop trail (about 1400' of elevation gain) that takes in both Caples and Silver Fork Creeks.

The day was warm and sunny so it was no surprise when 23 hikers turned out for today's hike.

The trailhead is located at the bridge crossing Silver Fork Creek south of Kyburz on Silver Fork Road between Hwy 50 and Mormon Immigrant Road.

Doggy Dash 2013

The Doggy Dash sponsored by the Sacramento SPCA took place in Wm. Land Park.  About 2,000 dogs participated in this year's Dash and is the marquee fund raising event for the SPCA raising more than $250,000.

The Dash is not race but a 5 K stroll through the shady streets of the park.  It's a fantastical event of happy and proud owners showing off their pet pooches.

Peter, Susan and their little pooch, Sophie, and I rode our bikes to the park to catch the Dash festivities.
