fall reflections on the feather river
This photo catches the reflection of Fall color on the Feather River near the Lake Oroville dam in Northern California. The river flows 80 miles downstream from the headlands of the Northern Sierra mountains before emptying into the Sacramento River. Along the river's banks can be found wildlife of all sort incuding deer,muskrat,elk and badgers. Many different kinds of waterfowl also live near the river.
The Feather River is a major source of water for California's agriculture in the Central Valley and drinking water for the populous southern part of the state.
