Hiking in Auburn State Recreation Area


Base of American Canyon Creek Falls.

I discovered www.waterfallswest.com recently, so I’ve been running down the list of water falls to visit around my area.  It’s a very comprehensive list with wonderful pictures.  This Sunday afternoon, I started with an easy hike through the Western States Trail in Auburn State Recreation Area.  See details here and here.  I left late in the afternoon, so I didn’t get a good picture of the lower American Canyon Creek waterfall.  It was getting dark and I didn’t want to run into any hungry critters.  Despite the lower water level, it was a wonderful hike.  If I had more day light, I would have hiked all the way through to the river.  Oh well.  There’s always next time.

    Derek, I have to say…

    You may have missed your calling. I really think you need to look into using your photography skills as a profession.

    With enough practice, there’s always the SHOT show sometime in January to find out how well I can take photos.

    For the mean time, I’ll maintain that photography is just a point and click hobby for me. =)
