Fillmore punch bowls Aug 07, 2011
Its a great hike, beautiful area. you have three punch bowls with different cliff jumps.
-the first bowl is small and with a water slide.
-the second bowl has a waterfall and cliff jump of 70'
also the rock splits in the middle so you can go under the waterfall. also has rappelling hook ups to. i was there when they were rappelling. WOW! Amazing!
-the third bowl has a view to die for. 40-50' cliff jumps with a big pool to do it in. you can jump from any-were in that hole. also its a reserve for the condors. if your lucky they will chill with you. it also has rappelling hook ups as well. bolted in to the rock. I've been there while they went down. WOW!
-the hike will take 5-7 hours depending on the person or group of people and how long you want to stay. no service for phones either. a small medic pack is a good idea. watch out for rattle snakes and bears. I've ran across both once in the 6 years I've been going.
-not a beginners hike. it's all down hill going there, so that means its all up hill going back. my neighbor is search and rescue. he helicoptered out a 275lb woman. make sure your fit to do this.
-BE SURE to bring plenty of water, and food. i usually bring: -2.5-3.o liters of water
-naturevalley cranberry/pomegranate bars
-fruit snacks and two snickers
-what i bring is for me, you can be different. remember that.
-if you have any questions on where to go and how to get there. let me know. i will be glad to guide you or take you back there. this is mopuno!
