Sempervirens Falls

Sempervirens Falls was perhaps the most family-friendly waterfall hike that I’m aware of in the Big Basin Redwoods State Park. The reason why I say this is that it involved a fairly easy…

Pomponio Falls

Pomponio Falls was kind of an incidental waterfall as the Memorial County Park had no literature even making mention of this waterfall. We found out about it from an entry in our…

Brooks Falls

Brooks Falls was really my waterfalling excuse to get in an early morning hike around the Pacifica area before returning to San Francisco for some city touring. For a waterfall this close to the…

Stairstep Falls

Stairstep Falls was one waterfall near the San Francisco Bay Area that had eluded us over the years for one reason or another. Part of the reason why this waterfall was so elusive over the years…

“Spring Breaking By The Bay” (The San Francisco Bay Area – April 18, 2019 to April 24, 2019)

Not recalling that I had to go that far up to continue the ascent, I briefly descended to where there was a familiar steep climb though it definitely lacked the vegetation that I swore was there…

“Big Differences” (Escondido Falls – April 7, 2019)

Not recalling that I had to go that far up to continue the ascent, I briefly descended to where there was a familiar steep climb though it definitely lacked the vegetation that I swore was there…

“Marching Forward” (Tenaja Falls – March 31, 2019)

She suddenly started to do things like picking her nose and smearing the byproducts onto me. Or she would be snacking on puffs and leaving crumbs everywhere…

“Along The Way” (Paradise Falls – March 24, 2019)

Julie quickly handed Tahia a spare plastic bag, and roughly a few minutes later, she hurled into the bag. The foul smell of bile and other stomach acids or other nasty things definitely didn’t…

“All of L.A.” (Lake Elsinore and Ortega Falls – March 17, 2019)

We also saw lots of cars looking for parallel parking and that parking situation looked pretty hopeless. It kind of made me wonder if we should abandon our attempts at…

Julian and Borrego Springs Itinerary – February 8, 2019 to February 10, 2019

This was a quick weekend getaway trip to celebrate Valentine’s Day a week early. The timing was about right because we managed to avoid pretty heavy Winter storms in the Anza Borrego desert while also leaving Julian right before the next round of oncoming Winter snows…

Green Valley Falls

Green Valley Falls was really more of a Summer time swimming hole. Consisting of an upper and lower waterfall set, I saw the potential for a very happening spot to cool off from the heat and take…

Borrego Palm Canyon Falls

Borrego Palm Canyon Falls was our main waterfalling excuse to explore the most popular trail in the Anza Borrego State Park. The Borrego Palm Canyon Trail earned its notoriety because the…

“Chilling Out” (Anza Borrego and Julian – February 8, 2019 to February 10, 2019)

When Julie finally got back to the trailhead at 12:25pm, she told me that she saw a ram! And she made sure to let me know that I should have taken the main trail back instead of the alternate one…

Top 10 Montana Waterfalls

Julie and I didn’t realize that we had enough of a collection of experiences to come up with a legitimate Top 10 List of Best Montana Waterfalls. But as you can see from the presence of this page, we certain do have enough to pick out our favorites…

Top 10 Utah Waterfalls

Shocking both Julie and I, we never realized that the state of Utah could have enough waterfalls to even realize a respectable Top 10 List of Best Utah Waterfalls. Yet after visiting the Beehive state countless times over the years, we feel like we can finally…

Top 10 North Carolina Waterfalls

The state of North Carolina featured numerous waterfalls in its western half, which we experienced for ourselves on a single trip in the Autumn of 2012. So with all the photos and data we’ve collected, it was about time we put out a list of Top 10 Best North Carolina Waterfalls…

Top 10 Washington Waterfalls

Julie and I have been on a handful of trips to the state of Washington. So we feel that we have enough of a library of waterfalling experiences to put together this list of Top 10 Best Washington Waterfalls…

Top 10 Oregon Waterfalls

After visiting well over 40 waterfalls on at least three separate visits in the state, we were long overdue to come out with a list of the Top 10 Best Oregon Waterfalls. And while we recognize that plenty of waterfalls reside…

“Shaking Off The Cobwebs” (Santa Ynez Falls and Placerita Creek Falls – January 19, 2019)

So given all of those factors, today’s excursion really felt like we were shaking off the cobwebs and getting back into the old MO of doing waterfall hikes opportunistically while writing about our…

Santa Ynez Falls

Santa Ynez Falls was one of those waterfalls we had put off doing after all the years we had been waterfalling locally in Southern California. We adopted this mentality because we tended…
