I often walk with Mr V. After attending a Pasadena art opening at Offramp Gallery we jumped onto the nearest onramp and headed up the 210 West to the 14. We were in search of gold and knew we’d find it at California Cultural Landmark 168. The waterfall (5.2 miles rt) is a tributary to Clarita Creek. The creek runs through a singed but standing old growth Oak Forest. Look what these oaks managed to survive! The remaining Fireplace mantel belonged to the Walker family of Walker’s Ranch. Hortense and Frank Walker along with eleven children, subsidised their living renting out land to the newly emerging film industry. HBO’s Dogwood was filmed nearby.
