Steve Hadley kayaking Sugar Pine Reservoir, Foresthill, California.
Sugar Pine Reservoir is one of our favorite spots to visit in the summer. It’s only about 45 minutes from Auburn and it’s a great spot to kayak, canoe, fish, picnic, hike, bike, run, swim and camp.
My husband and I usually bring our kayaks or our canoe and our hiking shoes and make a day trip out of it, although we have camped there a couple of times. We like to hike the 3.5-mile loop trail around the lake, then put our boats on the water for some great paddling. Our dog, Cocoa, is always with us when we visit Sugar Pine, as it is one of her favorite “dog friendly” spots too! After awhile of paddling, she is ready (and so are we) to hang out at our favorite spot along the shore.
During the winter months, nearby China Wall Staging Area is a popular spot for Cross Country Skiing, Snowshoeing, Sled-Dogging and Snowmobiling. There are also other great spots near China Wall and Sugar Pine to play in the snow.
Foresthill is booming right now. That is one reason why we are going to be adding new Foresthill photos to our galleries soon, along with other popular subjects.
During the next few weeks, we will be processing lots of new images to add to our galleries. And many of the images we will be adding have been featured on this blog during the past few months. Here is a partial list of subjects we will be working on.
