aweeshaducci66 The Kern River Canyon =) The North Fork flows through Sequoia National Park and the Sequoia National Forest, past post-pile formations, spiked-granite protrusions and sharp rock ledges. The North Fork Kern River canyon within the Golden Trout Wilderness may be the longest, linear glacially-sculpted valley in the world. It contains regionally unique features referred to as Kernbuts and Kerncols. These rounded to elongated (parallel to the axis of the canyon) granitic knobs called Kernbuts and the depressions between them called Kerncols were first identified and named in the Kern Canyon. The North Fork River corridor also includes regionally uncommon wetland habitat at Kern Lakes and the alkaline seep at the Forks of the Kern. The wetland habitat contains several uncommon aquatic and marsh species; the alkaline seep also supports several uncommon plants. The river's deep pool habitat supports a population of wild trout and also vividly colored hybrid trout.
The South Fork Kern River flows through a diverse landscape, including whitewater, waterfalls, large granite outcrops interspersed with open areas and open meadows with extensive vistas. The segment in the Dome Land Wilderness flows by numerous granitic domes and through a rugged and steep granitic gorge where whitewater rapids are common. With a gradient of 30 feet per mile, the North Fork Kern is one of the steepest and wildest whitewater rivers in North America. The Forks Run is a nearly continuous series of Class IV and V rapids and waterfalls. The Upper Kern is a popular stretch of river for whitewater boating, camping and fishing. The Lower Kern runs 32 miles from Isabella Dam to the canyon mouth above Bakersfield, California. #kernriver #river #upperkern #water #withmylove #fallcolors #fallleaves #beautiful #beautifulview #canonphotos #california #scenic #savetheplanet #keepkernclean #peaceful #positivity #planteearth #peacefulnature #hiking #history #facts #nature #natureonly #naturelover #natureshotoftheday #rawcalifornia #roadtrip #rocks #mothernature #enjoyingnature

  •   chad_bone I've been doing a lot of sea kayaking as of late, but I've been craving some freshwater. Need to get my old canoe out on a NorCal river soon! @sprockin 1d

philippelazaro KERN FLY FISHING

Entered the world of Deanna's dad yesterday and asked him to take me fly fishing. I could get into this. The fish were completely MIA but I got to spend most of the day in some amazing scenery just outside of Bakersfield. Just imagine what a "good" day of catching would be like.
