It was an fascinating day in Kernville. We awoke to discover the river had gone up some 2500 feet from the previous day. Impressive, to say the least. We spent some time admiring the volume of water, then went to the Farmers Market. On the way back we stopped at Riverside Park to watch all the activity.

A while after we got home, a sheriff's car with flashing lights came zipping down the driveway. We met him outside the house, and he told us he needed to get to the river. Out we went with him, to witness the rescue of a raft full of first-timers who'd gotten a little too intimate with some trees that normally are on dry land.
