This is my favorite hiking trail and one I’ve done many, many times since 2005. Each time I visit, something changes and it saddens me a bit, but such is the way of nature and life. This is the first time that I’ve seen landslides, overgrown plants and fallen trees that block your path though.
I remember coming with my parents for the first time. We didn’t climb up the falls back then but continued down Bear Canyon where I swam in this little secluded mini pool.
I wanted to reach the Bear Camp today since I’ve never seen it, but with all the obstacles we had to turn back. Patrick and I did climb the the side of the falls though. Not sure why I was so afraid to do it today when I’ve done it a few times before. *shrugs* A gorgeous hike still and the cold, fresh air was much needed. And is it just me, or do I see rainbows and hearts everywhere? ♥
