Seen from a far and a challenge to get to.
This waterfall is a (kinda) hidden jewel in our area.
Not only is this a strenuous hike but getting to it is a challenge too. Starting with a no trespassing sign and a locked gate, makes it a bit interesting.
This beautiful waterfall is located in the Rainbow Ridge area in Mt. Shasta. The trail, mostly a very steep road goes to the falls. The last 1/4 is a little bit of a scramble with creek crossings.
WILDFLOWERS COMING OUT!
HERE ARE A FEW WILDFLOWERS AND SIGNS OF EARLY SUMMER SO FAR...
I saw lots of these starting to come up. Larkspur is part of the Buttercup Family. It's scientific name Delphinium nuttallianum. I was hoping to see the yellow lady slippered orchid but a little too early yet.
It looks this weeks weather will be warm temperatures, partly sunny, clouds, showers...sounds like Mt. Shasta!
