The trail itself is about 3 miles up and up and about 3 miles down, down. I really do mean up. It's a gradual, but up. Today was an extremely popular day with folks hiking the trail. I don't remember seeing so many folks heading up to the falls as we were coming down. The trail climbs for about 2 miles in the open and then another mile in the trees before crossing hunter creek over a trilogy of logs and then the Falls greet you immediately. (The logs are quite a challenge for me as my balance is not what it used to be and I am thankful I have brought my hiking sticks. )
The trail leading to the falls.
The Falls were flowing pretty fast. I'm amazed that the log is still in the middle. It has been there since I can remember...at least 15 years.
Heading back down towards Reno
I'll be in the area for just a few more days before flying back to Phoenix and Casa Grande. Joel has been busy getting the new trailer ready for this summers travels. He hopes to get some minimal solar installed and new batteries as well as a solar controller and a new 3 state converter/charger. Yes, new batteries and converter/charger. Airstream installs cheap one stage controller/chargers which trash the batteries early on, which is a little disappointing to say the least!
