Table Mountain, Phantom Falls

Basalt wall.

Went to Phantom Falls several weeks ago.  The intent was to check out the blooming fields.  I heard it was supposed to be quite a sight.  Unfortunately, we arrived rather late.  Much of the vegetation was brown and dead.  The hike went well, nonetheless.

I was initially concerned about potentially crossing private property.  On the waterfall guide, it mentioned that it would be easier to hike off the reserve rather than through a ravine with poison oak.  Neither of us was worried about it, so we made our way through the brush, trees and poison oak.

Arriving at the falls from the top, we stared at the impressive canyon.  The waterfalls were slow, but enough to wow us anyway.  After a few moments of rest, we continued to the other side of the canyon to make our way down to the base of the waterfall.

The cave under the granite was impressive as was the basalt wall.
