An early start to that last hike

We went slowly enjoying the view. I really liked the granite cliffs on either side and the early morning light made me wish I was a painter or something as the camera wasnt doing it justice! At one point we found some really neat lizards basking in the sun.
The falls themselves were really impressive. I really wanted to hike to the top but it looked like you would need rock climbing gear before too long. I know there are other trails that go around on the upside of the canyon but I guess that will have to wait till another time.
Once we got back I spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and reading. I was finally able to capture a picture of a Bluejay that visited us frequently but never stayed long enough for a picture. One of the neatest things though happened mid afternoon when we were all siting and reading real still and quiet like.
We got up early Friday morning and packed up. We had one stake for the pop up shade that accidentally got hammered into a tree root. After we broke the hammer trying to get it out we called the ranger. Luckily it only wasted an hour but that still put is right in the middle of L.A. traffic at 4:30pm I didnt get home until practially 7pm but I had a lot of fun!
