Today's activity: Rafting on the American River.

Conditions: 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
