Hiking in Forest Falls....

 I have mentioned to you before that I live at the base of the San Bernardino mountains...this area is a great place to spend the day...there are so many spots to enjoy...many trails everywhere...you don't even have to drive too far to get there!
 Yesterday we decided to go up to Forest Falls...its not very far up the hill...its about 5000 feet elevation and well known for its many water falls...its a great place to hike and there are picnic areas that are pretty nice too...
 Joseph and Selin were up for a couple days...so we thought it would be a fun way to spend the morning...
 It was a perfect Summer morning...not too hot...perfect weather for a hike...
 We went up to the top of Big Falls trail head...there is a place to look out...
 But I wanted to get a little closer...and get a drink of that cold water flowing down...
 So we crossed down across the creek...and found another section of Big Falls...there are about 5 falls up there...this one was the third one...we weren't going to climb any higher than that...a little too dangerous for me...slippery and my balance isn't as good as it once was...
 Joseph was a good son and posed up in an old fallen tree for me!!
 Selin is always full of fun and I caught her playing on an old fallen branch...
 We decided to hike back up to the picnic area for a lunch we had packed...such a wonderful day to hike in the mountains...
 So many interesting things to look at on the trail back...


It was a wonderful day...although any day out in the mountains...especially when my kids are here is a great day!!! Thanks, Don, for thinking of this ...I enjoyed it so much!!
Until next time....enjoy your day!!!

Beautiful photos. It reminds me of some spots along the Yuba River in the High Sierras. I miss those mountains of California!
