Horsetail Falls

I am on a mission to experience the natural beauty of the powerful run-off of this winter's's massive precipitation.  Last weekend we hiked Horsetail Falls in Strawberry California.  The trail head is only about an hour up HWY 50 from El Dorado Hills before you get to Echo Summit.

Check out this video for inspiration and get out and see what a big winter brings.

Feather Falls Hike

Since we had so much precipitation over the winter, my friend and I decided that a fun day hike would be to Feather Falls, which is a 640' waterfall on the middle fork of the Feather River.  We opted for the 9 mile loop beginning on the lower trail on the way to the falls and the upper trail for the return trip.

All in all it was a great day but a BIG WORD OF CAUTION, Watch out for the POISON OAK!
