Can anyone tell me why the River of Skulls lately seems to be the river of stink. If you've been there the Calaveras has been getting smelier and smellier over about the last month.
I noticed a sulfurous putrescence about a month ago. Because the river was very low at the time I attributed it to exposed decaying alge or something. But the river has been both extremely high and extremely low over the last month and the stench is still there regardless of level.
It's a hydrogen sulfide smell and it seems to be strongest at the base of the dam.

The COG will be discussing the award of $300,000 to Foothill Communities Parks & Recreation for the purpose of establishing a trial system that will run from La Contenta, along Hwy 26 toward town.
Ryan Voorhees has provided a trail easement, and this will be the first leg of what we hope will be a trail system eventually connecting to the elementary school.
