Newton Canyon

This was not the trail I expected to take on this day.  I planned to go west just a bit to see a waterfall in Newton Canyon.  When I arrived at the falls they were so unspectacular that I thought the real falls must lay somewhere ahead.  I continued to hike all the way to Encinal Canyon Road, well beyond the two waterfalls marked on my map.  I was happy with the day nevertheless.

Heading west and looking back toward Kanan Dume.  I watched this cloud float past and then break up in a swirling wind.

Newton Balanced Rock

Through the mist a huge boulder balances upright, reminiscent of the one I saw on my last hike, Balanced Rock.

I headed back to my car and called it a day.
