On the Hill: Rafting the American River
  • On the Hill Summer, brought to you by The Steadman Clinic and the Steadman Philippon Research Institute, brings you a video report about a different Lake Tahoe adventure every day.

    Today’s activity: Rafting the American River.

    About the trip: Rafting around Lake Tahoe is the perfect weekend excursion. Lou Friedman takes On the Hill to the South Fork of the American River on a Saturday for a run down some exciting rapids

    Today’s weather: Well here comes the heat. Lake Tahoe will see 85 today, and that’s the coolest for the next 5 days. At the American River Parkway in California, temps will push 100 the next week. Perfect reason to get on the water, right? — National Weather Service
