As with many seasonal creeks, the height of water comes and goes, depending on the rainfall.  To prevent erosion, boulders have been dropped alongside the creek, which helps keep overflow contained as the stream wends its way to Paradise Falls a few miles away.

I always enjoy seeing the sandstone boulders and rocks in the Santa Monica mountains.  How do they get the way they are?  Who or what positioned them?  These look as if they were cast down the hillside by some giant hand . . . These are yellow and red and make a wonderful background for the foliage and weeds of the chaparral.
