Another Waterfall

#30/31

“Please don’t tell me I have to walk back and put this in my car.” I pleaded feeling already exhausted, yet excited.

1/3 of the way up I begin to see cars parked along side the road. Some forcing you into the oncoming traffic. So. Cal. traffic at its worst, again. I decided to head to the top of my destination anyway, the head of the trail toSturtevant Falls. Who knows, I just might get lucky. Hahaha

Cars were double parking as they lurked for weary hikers ready to leave. I’m done. I’m not waiting. I’m leaving.

2/3 down the mountain I came across an open lot. I was too curious to pass this up. After all, I drove all this way to see it. I park and start trucking up the side of the mountain. I grabbed a 1.5 liter of water this time. Dangling from the rear view mirrors or laying on dashboards parking permits sparkled in the sunlight as I plugged onward. Some cars didn’t display any. Mine was one of them. Cars parked directly next to ‘no parking’ signs. This is the mother load for a police officer.

“That’ll be $5 hun.” She replied. I tucked the parking permit in my bag and off to see this waterfall. It was a risky move. It was a glorious day. It was a glorious hike. The water fall was so, so glorious too. A day in nature with all the ‘squirrels’ is better than going squirrelly in the city.

  1. I didn’t know about this hike so am glad you left a link. It looks gorgeous…except for the So Cal traffic. I live in So Cal, and there are so many things to do, but that traffic!!
    My favorite: The water fall was so, so glorious too. A day in nature with all the ‘squirrels’ is better than going squirrelly in the city. Amen!!
