Swimming and Math
The promise of California is that somewhere the perfect day is happening, right now. The sky is clear and the air is warm. The sun shines smoothly on a flat, sofa-sized rock next to a pool that's 72 degrees. Somewhere the perfect day is happening, and here are the numbers to prove it.
Swimming Holes of California features 105 hikes. The summer season is 140-days long, beginning April 15 in the southern deserts and ending
late September in the Sierra.
Scientific calculations demonstrate that only once in more than 2,000 years will it not be perfect at a swimming hole somewhere in California.

So grab a pair of shorts and have fun checking my math.
