San Mateo Creek in Riverside County California

On this trek there was a lot to catch my attention. I stopped and clicked very often. So come walk with me, we will see cool rocks, dogs, flowers and our natural Southern California. 

You might wonder where the word Tenaja comes from. It is a Native American word for tank. A tenaja is a natural basin in an area of bedrock that holds water. Native Americans used tanks like the pools at Tenaja Falls to survive through the seasons of the year when the rain stops falling and creeks dry up.

#2 Same rocks as above.

Meika wanted to know why we walked around them, when there was a clear tunnel through them. 

#4 Where there’s water…

The creek had a lot of tadpoles and frogs. 

#10 Last snap on this part of the hike.

These flowers were blooming. I don't know what they are, but they sure were pretty. 

I hope you liked this little walk. Tomorrow we reach the falls, and my scariest hike so far. Let's just say, I never want to hike this again. Glad I did it, but this kind of hiking is not for me. It was more of a rock climbing expedition without ropes. 

Have a great day and stay safe!
