Matilija Backpack March 26, 27 and 28
Finally! Made a trip up the main for Matilija Creek with my brother Rob and my friend Mark. We hiked in about halfway on Friday evening and made our own private little camp in a spot on a side of the creek that looked like people have not been for quite a while. We packed in some good food and ate like kings. I was blown away by the beauty of the twisted tilted up landscape with the creek cascading into beautiful deep aqua and green pools. Lots of flowers were blooming everywhere under a cloudless sky all weekend. We made the hike up to all of the waterfalls on Saturday. They were totally amazing. We caught a water snake and seen several others along the way as well. We had a great time, laughed a lot, and really enjoyed being out in the mountains.
