A Cataract Trail waterfall
Many of the wildflowers I saw in last week’s post were seen on a brisk hike through the ravine along the Cataract Trail on the west side Mt Tamalpais. It was a brisk because I had to walk down from a trail head near the top in time to arrive at the cascades before the sun reached them. A longer walk than I expected.
I found this cascade moments before the sun came through the ravine and made photography difficult:
For me, waterfall images are as much about the stones that surround them as the water itself. I don’t know what they are, basalt perhaps, wet and shiny with reflected light.
I was warned that there had been a drought and there might not be much of a flow, but different streams flowing into the ravine made the hike to this waterfall worthwhile.
