Rare Wonder: Alamere Falls!!!!

                                   Do you want to see a rare wonder ?
Then come with us to Alamere falls. There is only one other waterfalls like Alamere falls in California because it is classified as a "tidefall". A tidefall is a waterfall that flows directly into the ocean. This trail starts from the Palomarin trailhead and is a 7.5 mile round trip. On this trail you will come across two lakes which are surrounded by green lush vegetation, two waterfalls that are very different from each other. The first waterfall you come across is classified as a cascade and there is actually 3 of them which are 30 feet long in total. The second water fall as you head towards the beach is a beautiful tidefall that drops 40 feet to the beach below. It can get as wide as 25 feet  during rainy season. You will come to a sign that reads ".4 miles to  Alamere falls." Here the trail becomes very narrow and you might feel as if you are an explorer on a quest to finding something worth seeing. Posion oak can be found on both sides of this narrow path. It is highly reccomanded to wear long sleeved shirts and pants to insure that your body is safe from contacting poision oak. As you venture out of the narrow path you will be able to see the beach from the distance. To get to the first waterfall you have to go through the first crack in the cliff which is fairly easy. Then you get to the 1st waterfall. Here you find people washing hands and swimming in the small plunge pool that looks fairly shallow. It is never recommended to stand underneath the waterfall because rocks and boulders frequently fall. You already feel the gradification for going this far to see the 1st water fall but the best is yet to come. Like most things in life the best things require some work. In order to get down to the wonder you have to go down a steep hill  to get down to the beach. To the left is the grand rare "tidefall." Now you can sit back and enjoy the sound of the ocean and waterfall entwined .
