Tenaja Falls

This episode is about our short day hike to visit the Tenaja Falls and Fisherman’s Camp in the San Mateo Canyon Wilderness of the Cleveland National Forest.  Dave and I enjoy the brilliant sunshine and unusually warm January temperatures to hike up the Tenaja Falls Trail.

With a drop of 140 feet, Tenaja Falls is one of the most scenic vistas along the Santa Ana Mountain range.  Timing is a big factor to view this waterfall at its grandeur and we made the hike just a few weeks after a large storm dumps 15 inches of rain into Southern California.

Fisherman’s Camp is just a few miles off a spur trail from the Tenaja Falls Trail so Dave and I made the side trip to visit this historic fishing destination.

In this podcast I talk about my exciting adventure trying to get home in the middle of one of the decades largest storms and how the contents of my Bug Out Bag saved the day.

You’re driving home from work in a pouring rain and suddenly you windshield wipers snap off while you’re traveling down the freeway. What do you do?  Find out what happened in this episode.
