Tokopah Falls


A day hike with my best friend.

Butterflies, orange, yellow, white, blue playing tag in the wild flowers

I wish I knew their names

Majestic Sequoias surrounded by a carpet of ferns


The only sounds the echo of our footsteps on the dirt and granite

The calls of unseen, unknown birds

The wind winding its way through the branches of the tall, tall trees

The click of the shutter on his camera

We inhale the clean, clear air infused with the freshness of pine needles

We are surrounded by the silver gray of the granite canyon

It hugs us close

The falls of Tokopah draw us up

Till we find the water gracefully, coolly running down
