Cookie and Kevin Gallegos recently stayed at the Outside Inn to celebrate their wedding anniversary. While here in Nevada City they checked out the local scene, ate some delicious food at California Organics and South Pine Cafe.

Cookie and Kevin chose the trailhead from Edwards and walked downstream, an 8 mile section of the extensive trail network. They said it was a little chilly at first, but beautiful and definitely a worthwhile hike at this time of the year. Plus the pair enjoyed the fact that they were the only ones down by the river.
