Fish Canyon Falls

Fish Canyon Falls

The splash
down tumbling rocks,
each cascade drops further…
falling water roar echoed by

Fresh clumps
of unlaced hiking boots scattered
around the swimming hole,
even the dog
jumps in.

For those in the Los Angeles area, I am leading a "haiku" hike to Fish Canyon Falls on April 24th, at 9 am. It's a 4 mile round-trip, 900 foot elevation gain hike. Most of the trail is shaded, although there are some open areas with direct sun exposure. Hiking boots or shoes with good tread are highly recommended. For more info, send me an e-mail.
