In the Sierra Valley high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains is the source of the Feather River. On our way to camping at "Camp Rutabaga" near the Yuba Pass we went off-road on a ranch road and found the source of the Feather River. This high valley wetland harbors Sand Hill Cranes and Black Angus.
They look so natural together.
Ducks, barbed-wire, pick-up trucks and clear mountain air got us started off on a mountain camping get-away.
