Secret Swimming Hole

Summertime fun… a secret swimming hole with a natural water slide… on the South Fork of the Yuba River, somewhere near Truckee…

  • East branch of the Pemigewasset River in NH was our secret spot when I was a kid. Golden-green water teeming with native trout and massive granite boulders for jumping from into deep pools. Your post brought back a lot of great memories. Thanks!

  • Now who doesn’t like a secret swim hole with it’s own private water slide! I always love coming across a remote pond or swim hole. Something special about knowing about a place that isn’t swarming with people. Looks like the little fella is having a blast. Doesn’t get any better than that. 🙂

    • It was his first time experiencing a swimming hole. He loved it! Today he’s going to see Lake Tahoe for the first time. Fun stuff!

      • I loved Lake Tahoe when I was stationed near there in the 80’s. He’ll have a blast. Have fun and be safe.
