It pays to call the ranger! I called about spring flowers on these riverside trails (not yet he said), and as long as I was there asked about staying overnight. He said the all the other parking areas were day use only, but the one at the end of the road - Perry Riffle (cool name!) - allows it. So here I am, feeling very pleased about life.

Place was just awesome again!

The Sacramento River is running high, so the flatlands where I walked last time were flooded.

It is at the dead end of the paved road into this BLM area, so every car and truck that comes through ends up doing a u-ey in my camping area.

Not that many people come through, but the lack of privacy wears you down after a while, and both times I've stayed here I've left relatively early in the morning.
