The South Yuba River in Nevada City is a special place. After a busy month at the Outside Inn helping many guests figure out which river spot was perfect for them (how far do you want to walk, children, how far do you want to drive, etc?), I finally took myself to the river! These photos are from a variety of swimming spots upstream from Purdons Crossing. For those of you who missed the post about the construction of the bridge, click here, parking is limited due to the construction. If you have been procrastinating on heading down to the river, go now, the water is very low and a perfect temperature. Remember– always pack out what you brought in and you want to get involved in helping the South Yuba River check out the SYRCL River Ambassador Program or check out the California State Parks Foundation.
