Donner Creek Cascade

Donner Creek, originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

Here's a cascade on Donner Creek in Mt. Diablo State Park. This creek really rushes in the winter, when it is fed by multiple springs and canyons. Waterfalls occur in the higher canyons, but they can be difficult to see up close.

Back in February...When There Was Rain

This waterfall, in Las Trampas, looks very different now. No water flows over the cliff in this typical dry, dusty California autumn.

In the winter though, the waterfall gushes and flows wonderfully. Looking forward to the rains!

Rainy Day Waterfall

I hiked to this waterfall back in February, during the last rainstorm of the season.

It may have been the last rainstorm, but it certainly was powerful. A sudden heavy shower prevented me from starting my hike. However, I soon got going.

After following the creek upstream, I came to dozens of gushing waterfalls. This was just one of those cascades.

It's hard to believe this is all in the Bay Area.

Welcome to my new blog on Bay Area Waterfalls. Here, you will find information on waterfalls and cascades worth seeing in the San Francisco Bay Area. I will be adding photos of my discoveries and hikes, so stay tuned.

The waterfall above is located in the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness near San Ramon.
