Andrew Schleif, an engineer from Oregon is in the middle of the trip of a life time. He quit his day job and is hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from California to Washington. Along the way he is looking for signs of Pika for ASC researcher, April Craighead. The Pika is an important indicator species for climate change, and the data recorded by Andrew will contribute to an important body of knowledge.
Our journey down the long Sacramento has begun. On Wednesday Kevin and Galen walked to the bottom of Box Canyon Dam, the official beginning of the Sacramento River. The river starts off fast and narrow. It is hard to believe its the same river that provides water to millions of Californians. The walk down to the river is an adventure in of its own, steep and rocky. A rope has been installed to offer assistance.
