The waterfall



Some might say my waterfall is



more like a faucet. But I find drama



in privacy.



It's my secret place, as luck will out.

  2. You don't need large scale to appreciate beauty.

  3. Maybe it's easier--and better--to keep secrets like these when they're so understated. Yes, that is lucky.

  4. This one is really, really nearby. And pristine. I think because the trail is narrow, unimproved, with, as Banjo says, a subtle destination.

  5. I think I recognize a few of those shots. Glad you've found a wonderful place to hike and enjoy. Nice to know there is still refuge in LA County, untouched by idiots.

  7. Oh. I love, love, love privacy & solitude. Hard to find much of it, these days.

  10. Really, really nearby? I may have to show Tommy these photos and see if he can help me find this lovely waterfall.

  11. Who is Margaret really, and why does she want me dead?

    (I was going to put this comment on her blog, but she's being all Betsy-Tacy over there.)

  12. God forbid, Margaret!
    Lettuce pray the trail is at least wide enuf to be safe for both hiker & biker can enjoy nature together.

  13. Pristine equals potable - and none of those pollutant adjectives.

  14. haha - had the same thought as Margaret before I even got to her comment. My grandma lives in Altadena and has been giving me all the updates on the deaths in the canyon . . . sad, but true.

  15. I'm surprised there's still water flowing in August. Best keep it secret and unspoilt. I don't think helicopters fit into that canyon.

  16. Is the trailhead to this waterfall featured over at Petrea's 8/22 blog post? However you get there, looks like an idyllic spot.

  17. The second image is wonderfully Grimm. I can almost hear the water.

  18. Katie, no, different places. Latino -- you're right! It is deliciously Grimm.

  19. I get it Margaret!!! Fewer people to visit the spot!!! That way...our Miss Hiker can continue to enjoy her private spot in private!!! After all...our Hiker knows how to navigate all sorts of trails and would not be one to go over, head over arse!!!
