Last Sunday a hike in Uvas Canyon to see the waterfalls. Couldn’t get to all of them but saw 4 and hope to go back to see one that was missed. The amount of rain we received in Northern California recently is understood in variaton upon seeing these waterfalls. Easy walks to see them and the drive is gorgeous. The hills are beginning to be that incredible green which I have only experienced out here. Uvas Canyon is a regional park near Morgan Hill, south of San Jose.

I know the next waterfall looks ‘crooked’ and am wondering if the ground and hillside surrounding reflect earthquake patterns as it is near the Loma Prieta area. The trail I did not go on has an overlook – next time!
