I took this photo a year ago. This is the time to be shooting waterfalls in Marin County because most of them are at their best in the rainy season. I had a hard time getting down to the creek for this photo. It was very steep the way I went. If I go again I’ll try to find a better route. Getting out was even harder. I had to decide which rock or limb I was going to try to grab for the next move. Being on my belly at times crawling through the wet leaves and dirt got me into prime tick habitat and, sure enough, I got one. I didn’t find it until the next day and by that time it was deeply imbedded. Fortunately, it wasn’t carrying Lyme disease. Only 10% of the ticks in Marin carry it. On the East Coast it’s more like 90%. You don’t want Lyme disease. To purchase a print of this image click here.
