During rainy times, like this January, Eaton Wash is a wonderful rushing stream. This picture seems out of place in southern California -- and so all the more beautiful. I took this picture a short walk from the Eaton Canyon Nature Center just north of New York Drive. From here, the wash flows south under the bridge at New York Drive and into Eaton Wash Reservoir.
We walked up and down the stream until my agile ten year found a spot where he could scramble across the stream. Once he was on the other side, we had to shout to be hear each other over the crash of the water.
