|The ever-changing scenery on the way to the falls|
First, you leap off the boat and swim to shore. Then you walk down the beach and across the arroyo. Climb the stairs up the cliff side. Turn left at the top. Walk through ranchero lands, staying out of the way of pack mules and rancheros on horseback. After two river crossings, look for the gate on the left with the green arrow. Crawl under the gate and follow the path. Don't take the path that splits to the left. Keep right. Eventually, the path is cluttered with boulders. Follow the sound of whitewater. Walk down the stone steps and voila! One and a half hour later, you have arrived!
|A peaceful little scene|
|River crossing numero uno (If you don`t count the one on the beach)|
|Don't miss this gate, (other hikers did...) Look closely, there is a|
green arrow pointing down on the lower board.
When we first arrived, there was a bit of a crowd, luckily they dispersed soon after our arrival. And then... we played!
|Oh, the novelty of swimming in fresh water|
|Yep, that smile sums it up|

They don't seem to mind...
