Hey there. I've been meaning to post about our hiking trip to Escondido Falls for about 2 weeks now. I've been caught up so many projects and family stuff that I just haven't had the time. This is why I'm posting on a Saturday. lol It's been a long while since I've done some Saturday work. Anyways let me tell you about our trip.
I've been wanting to take the family out to some sort of outdoor activity. Living in Sourthern California definitely has it's perks when trying to decide something like that. There's the beach, hiking trails, camping spots, mountain climbing, and many others and I wanted to do something that I, myself, haven't done. Believe it or not, I've never been hiking so I decided that we're going to look for a trail and go for it. That's when I hear about Escondido Falls and it's waterfall. Whoa... a waterfall. From what I read online, the trail itself is not that bad and is relatively easy to walk through and when you get to the end of it, there's a waterfall to bestow upon. I thought it would be perfect to take the kids and check it out.
The trail was difficult to find. The parking space for the trail is small space and it's right off the famous pacific coast highway. The problem is that there is no sign that says, "trail this way" or anything of that sort so as you're driving, you're swiveling your head keeping an eye out for a sign showing you the way. Naturally, we missed the entrance, and on our second pass, we see it. We parked on the gravel and walked towards the trail. It's weird at first because you are walking near a residential area so there are houses around you. Once you go further into that residential community, the trail begins.
|No guys, the houses are not part of the trail!|
|You're gonna fall!!! Oh wait... you already did! D'oh!|
|Mr. Cool Guy over here makes it look easy.|
|Look ma! We made it to the waterfall!|
|Time for our hero pose!|
|The wife and I enjoying our hike.|
|The Rocky theme song would have made this moment perfect!|
|We did it dad, we did it!|
I also wanted to bring this picture to your attention. Can somebody tell me what that thing in the sky is?
|Is that a UFO?!?!?!|
