The Northern California Waterfalls are our survey of waterfalls we’ve managed to visit pretty much anywhere north of the state capital in Sacramento.
Even though Julie and I have lived in California most of our lives, for the first 16 years of our days of waterfalling together, we’ve had a gaping hole in our survey pertaining to this part of the state for one reason or another (i.e. drought, distance, life circumstances, etc.).
We knew we were missing out on California’s most spectacular waterfalls outside of Yosemite, and it was merely a matter of time before we finally had the fortune of visiting this part of the state.
Finally after we’ve had opportunities to make a few trips to the northern part of our state in 2016, we can finally feel confident about putting this page together.
Indeed, we’ve not only managed to visit the waterfalls located in the Gold Rush area of Tahoe National Forest, Nevada County, and Plumas National Forest, but we’ve also gone further north where the geologic distinction between the southern end of the Cascade Ranges of the Pacific Northwest and the northernmost end of the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California were blurred.
Given that we’re covering a lot of real estate in this vast region of the Golden State, there was no shortage of quality waterfalls, and we’ll be keen on making more visits up here to fully experience what our home state has to offer in the way of Nature and unforgettable family experiences…
