Don't Go Chasin'

Step out your Montecito Heights front door and step into a waterfall wading pool. In an hour and a half.

Found two different double waterfalls and hear there are even more around there. There are pictures from in the early 1900's showing a wooden walkway that went up to these wonders. Amazing.

"The site of Professor Lowe's elegant Rubio Pavilion and the lower terminal for the famous incline tram. From 1893 through 1936 it carried thousands of passengers to Echo Mountain — the starting point of the Mount Lowe Railway. In 1909, giant boulders dislodged by a severe storm destroyed the double-deck pavilion."

The Angeles National Forest is very highly underrated.

I've seen a picture of my great grandfather in front of the Echo Mountain tram. Wish I had it.

Where is this view from and did they clear out the landslide that obscured it?
