Table Mountain – Oroville, CA. Flag/Phantom Falls

We were really itching for a day hike, so we went to Table Mountain – rain or shine. Flag Falls is located another 1.5 miles from Phantom Falls, hiking on familiar ground. I still managed to punch in the wrong GPS coordinates; we were off 1 mile north west of our intended mark. I will not forgo the topographic map ever again.

Day started off as a wonderful day with crisp afternoon air and sunny skies. As soon as we made it to Flag Falls, sleet fell, followed by snow. We intended to descend from Table Mountain for a peak below Flag Falls; however, decided against it for concerns of finding a safe way down in wet conditions.  On our way back up, the sun came back.

The falls we observed last year have nothing on the falls this time.  It helps to seek waterfalls following a rain storm.
