New from Long Beach

I am getting back into hiking after a couple of decades hiatus. Going to take it slow then ramp up. My son now hikes with his friends and I tell him how it used to be on the trails. So I am going to give it a shot by a walk to Monrovia Falls, from the lower parking of course.

Monrovia Falls is a nice one.  Sawpit Canyon (same trail head) is also nice.

Welcome.

Welcome. Monrovia Falls was one of my first attempts at impressing a lady. Unfortunately I fell and nearly broke my face on the upper rocks. Luckily, though, the lady did not see any of my mishap.

As someone who has done the same thing on several occasions, I am happy your honor remains intact. Cool

Made it to the Falls

Well this past Friday I made it out there, Met up with Bob Dollins there, Good person in all. He gave me a tour of the trails and even up to an new trail that goes up to a high point looking due south. The falls were cool and only one bear was seen by others on the trail Well It was fun and I made it through with no issues.  Looking forward to my next trip after adding a few more essentials to my pack. Did not want to buy too much until I knew what I needed. Now I sort of know.
I am sure most of you have seen this before but here is a link to some more pictures of it.
