On the way back from my first hike, I stopped at the ever popular 69 ft. high Potem Falls. It is an easy hike. I have been here many times before and did not really want to stop here, however it was in shade because it was so late in the day now, and I wanted to get video of Potem Falls (which I did, successfully).

I was disgusted. There was trash everywhere, left behind by the multitude of idiots coming here. I usually always pick up trash on the trail, however my trash bag was already full from stuff I collected from my first hike, so I did not even take it down to Potem Falls. I wish I had. Also, much of the trash was thrown down the steep hillsides where it would be very difficult to pick up (and possibly, in poison oak). Why do people have to ruin such a beautiful location? Maybe someone (perhaps one or more of my awesome readers) will go to Potem Falls and pick up the trash (just please do not get any poison oak rash in the process). If I lived up here, I would make a special trip myself to clean it up.

Anyway, the waterfall itself was beautiful and flowing nicely. It was late when I got home, and I was so extremely tired, yet I still had to be back at work the next day. Ugh.

    Trashing a beautiful area is a great way to have it forever closed off or turned into a fee area. If any of us can figure out how to fix stupid we will become very wealthy and self fulfilled.

    Yes I agree, Pat. It is so annoying.
