Exploring our new city… Crystal Creek Falls

This past weekend we headed towards Whiskeytown once again (which is only about a 15 minute drive away) and we spent the morning exploring at Crystal Creek Falls….

IMG_8283We walked a short trail into where the falls are located. The falls appeared right in front of us and we were looking down on them from above. We then climbed down to the bottom of the waterfalls where we could sit on the rocks at the pools edge and enjoy the beauty around us.

Emily was very envious and wanted to go with them but it was too difficult to climb and hold on to her at the same time.

The weather here has turned very warm again during the day so we ate our picnic morning tea in the forest and then we headed home before it got to hot. There are so many things to do here in the great outdoors that our ‘must see’ list is growing longer and longer each week.
