Nojoqui Falls – The Little Dripper
I had the opportunity to visit this Cool Place in the Santa Ynez Hills called Nojoqui Falls. It’s Pronounced No-HO-Wee Falls. A vernal Fall (it only flows when it rains or snow melts), it’s the perfect place to visit with all the storms this Year in California. The local’s call these storms, “The Pineapple Express” cause they come from Hawaii. This morning the Falls were blasting like I have never seen or heard of before:
On a day like today the stream was gushing and The Falls were Blasting …
I had to stand back 30 or 40 feet just to keep the lens clear to get this shot.

The Nojoqui Park is beautiful. There is this fun trail that meanders back and forth along the stream flowing from the falls. Lots of Wooden Bridges, Mini Falls and tributaries to the main stream flow all around you. At the beginning of the trail there is this old Rock Water fountain from about 75 Years ago. All very Cool.
It takes about 10 minutes to hike up. It’s not handicap friendly.
More Pictures of our visit to follow another Day.
