This video shows me and my family travel and explore Bassi Falls in Eldorado Nat'l Forest, CA. (Sunday, July 15, 2012)
To start it off, the video first shows our short drive from Wench Creek Campground towards the northeast and we entered the very rough, dusty, bumpy road that'll end and take us to the trail that lead to the Bassi Falls. We had to put 4-wheel drive just in case.
Once at the end of the road, we parked and then we hiked just a bit until we finally reached the falls. Beautiful scenic views surrounded the area. Unluckily since it was a very dry previous winter, the falls was all dried up. Only a small stream of water remained in the main portion of the falls. Nonetheless, there was water still flowing downstream with some life like a few fish spotted. Then our group split into groups, exploring the area. I stayed in and around the dry river beds, exploring and enjoying the scenery around by the falls. We can actually climb up all the way on the top of the falls but the trail was too steep according to my uncles. My cousin Ronel actually found a water snake! I also touched it but from the tail. The best I can explain how the snake felt was like it was leathery, scaly, reptiley feeling and it was moving like an earthworm feeling, all put together. Then coming early afternoon, we then left the falls and hiked back to the car.
At around 11ish a.m., we arrived to the falls and we left just before 12:25 p.m. to head back to our campsite in Wench Creek Campground. Even if the waterfall was mostly dried up, we still enjoyed our time together as a family, exploring the area! We then enjoyed the bumpy road back to Ice House Rd that lead us back to Wench Creek Campground.
There are photos taken during our trip here is shown at the end of the video. Enjoy!
