The Sacramento Bee's Sam Stanton provides a kayaker's-eye view of the American River, beginning at Sailor Bar and making the long run down to Discovery Park where the American meets the Sacramento. The scenery, wildlife and thrill of the river's variety of conditions give this run its popular status. And with still-plentiful water in the river, conditions are ideal. Note that Stanton is wearing a personal flotation device, critical gear for a safe day on the river. Andy Alfaro The Sacramento Bee
