What better place to go for a Friday night picnic with the grands...for our 'post sports day' party?
They were most intrigued with the menu...walking tacos. To my knowledge...walking tacos aren't a commonly served dish out here on the west coast. In fact, I had never heard of them until my brother from Iowa told me how they served 'walking tacos' at all their summer outdoor functions (from camping outings to ball games to fund raisers). You use individual sized bags of nacho chips, tortilla chips or corn chips...crush them slightly...then slit open the bag along the side. Then start layering your taco salad toppings...hamburger taco sauce, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, grated cheese sour cream...and anything else your heart may desire. Stir up your gourmet salad with a disposable fork...and eat right out of the bag. Guess what...no dishes! What a fabulous idea...not sure why I'd never thought of this before.
The girls were quite impressed with the whole thing...but decided that they couldn't sit at the picnic table to eat 'walking tacos'...they were meant to be eaten while walking. Okay!
We have many pictures taken at this very spot...the viewing platform at the base of the falls. Signs suggest (quite strongly) that this is as far as hikers should go. I've been coming up here since I was a kid...and in those days there were no signs...and no viewing platforms...and not much of a trail...and we would hike much further. But now...we watch from afar. And it is still spectacular! This won't likely be the last time I'll be posting about Bridal Veil Falls...our own little treasure...at the foot of Mt. Cheam.
Once the picnic part was over and done with...it was time for a trek up to the falls.
Have a wonderful Monday!
