Blackstar Falls and Nick. He looks tiny next to it, and he's 6'2" and weighs about 400lbs.
Blackstar is a place of legends here in Orange County. Satanic cult sacrifices, the ghosts of massacred indians, elves, witches pretty much anything you can think of "happens" here. I've never experienced anything out of the ordinary but growing up hearing the tales, no doubt it's a little eerie. All i know is there is some good hiking and bitchin waterfalls deep in the canyon. And since it's been raining so much, i knew there'd be some good water flow so thats what we did today.
One thing i trip out on is when i talk to people who've never been here or just checked things out in the local mountains (especially because it's only 15 minutes away from anywhere here) maybe it's because me and my brothers explored this area so much as kids with our old man and it seems so second nature to me. Whatever the deal, people just need to get out more often and explore whats right in there backyard.
