The majesty of rock cliff bones
Rise above our heads
Muscles spring to life with the climb
Ascent and descent to the womb of the falls

Late morning at Tahquitz Falls
Of long washed granite
Carved by a constant flow
Within and without
Under the sun's warmth
Be true to your free spirit
Imagination with meaning
I knew nothing about the history of Tahquitz Falls or the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians when my friend took me to this magical place forty plus years ago and I wrote my thoughts. I found these words today on the Tahquitz Canyon website http://www.tahquitzcanyon.com. There is much to be learned from our ancestors, never forget we are all of the tribe Human.
This is a place of contrasts;
it is a place of ancient and new,
a place of power.
Come with the right purpose
and a clear mind to enjoy it beauty and mystery.
