We went hiking today at horsetail falls. It was instant gratification, we could see this waterfall from the parking lot!
Just about 1 1/2 miles up the trail (emphasis on up) we came across ponytail falls. That's Ben and Eli standing behind it.
Eli got tired and took a nap for about half the hike.
He missed some beautiful scenery.
Over all the 3.5 mile loop was well worth it. There were 3 waterfalls, a weeping wall and quite a few stream crossings. The only thing the guidebook left out was that the "loop" dumps you back out on the freeway about a half mile from the parking lot. You have to hike along a narrow highway to get back to your car. I ended up waiting with Eli while Ben went to get the car.
