The other day on the suggestion of my cousin I headed out to a place called Eaton Canyon. It’s over in Altadena, California which isn’t far from where I live so I was more than willing to head there. The trail there is an easy one that end up at a nice looking waterfall. The only problem with that is it is a very popular spot. So being that I was there on a weekend it was pretty crowded. So with a majority of the people there walking along the main trail I decided to follow another path. The path I followed eventually led back to the main trail but it had less of a crowd to contend with. And being a photographer I figured a smaller crowd would work in my favor.
As I hiked along the trail I was found that it went alongside a stream. Due to recent rains it was flowing quite nicely. But it also made getting across it fairly interesting. So I continued along the trail to enjoy the scenery around me and to see where I might be able to cross safely. There was plenty to see and enjoy at Eaton Canyon. Despite being a crowded location there there was still plenty of room to enjoy the area. I never did make it to the waterfall though. With the crowd growing in numbers, rain threatening to come back and my stomach growling I decided to turn back. If this area were far from me I would have pressed forward. But with it being so close to me I didn’t mind postponing my visit to the waterfall for a few more days.
