Photos from this afternoon's walk in Eaton Canyon
Some images from the walk down to Eaton Canyon this afternoon. There was enough rain over the last few days that there’s a lot of water still running through the arroyo. So much so that I didn’t want to chance crossing it to see the waterfall at the end.
