Because this winter is so sunny, we got out our hiking shoes and went down to the South Yuba River canyon to hike upstream from Edwards Crossing. The South Yuba River is a treat regardless of the season. Starting at the Yuba Campground we hiked 4 miles upstream to Humbug Creek and had a picnic lunch by the river. Known as the South Yuba Trail East, it is more remote than the trail from Edwards to Purdons, but just as spectacular. Stop by the Outside Inn’s office for a trail map, if you’re unfamiliar with the trail. And the winner of the tickets to A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Gina T.
