Elsmere Canyon Waterfalls


50-foot waterfall - The highest and most spectacular waterfall in Elsmere Canyon (2-5-2005). The Foothill fire of July 2004 burned much of the brush in the canyon including around this waterfall.


The brown Towsley formation beds lay on top of the basal metamorphic/igneous rocks here (2-5-2005)


I took this photo from high up the eastern face overlooking the waterfall. Like the previous photo, the Towsley formation beds clearly lay on top of the basal metamorphic/igneous rocks. It would be impossible to get a photo like this today. (2-5-2005)
