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…
