American River Canyon, Auburn, CA

Near Auburn, CA, the middle and north forks of the American river join and begin the journey to Folsom lake where they join the south fork.  Dams control the flow of the water but it still runs rapidly over the rocks creating picturesque rapids.  It was early morning; the sun was just high enough to begin illuminating the steep canyon wall on a cool, foggy morning.  The fog was lifting.  The muted thunder of the rapids below wafted up canyon.  A hole opened in the clouds allowing a shaft of light to spotlight a fog shrouded section of the forest below creating a surreal image of the forest reawakening.
