Decades of River Floating

John Taylor | Sacramento, CA

Since moving here over 30 years ago, my family has rafted down the American River every 4th of July. We are now into our 3rd generation of family that consider the event a most fun thing to do every year. We celebrate our country by getting out and enjoying the cold water and the many others who celebrate their holiday with us on the river. I can’t think of a better, safer place to be on the 4th of July, and it’s nice to have all our family along, enjoying the sun and water. Occasional squirt guns and water launchers make for more fun on the river as well.
