“A strong man and a waterfall always channel their own path.”

Waterfalls are commonly formed when a river is young. At these times the channel is often narrow and deep. When the river courses over resistant bedrock, erosion happens slowly, while downstream the erosion occurs more rapidly. As the watercourse increases its velocity at the edge of the waterfall, it plucks material from the riverbed. Whirlpools created in the turbulence as well as sand and stones carried by the watercourse increase the erosion capacity. This causes the waterfall to carve deeper into the bed and to recede upstream. Often over time, the waterfall will recede back to form a canyon or gorge downstream as it recedes upstream, and it will carve deeper into the ridge above it. The rate of retreat for a waterfall can be as high as one and half meters per year.

Often, the rock stratum just below the more resistant shelf will be of a softer type, meaning that undercutting due to splashback will occur here to form a shallow cave-like formation known as a rock shelter under and behind the waterfall. Eventually, the outcropping, more resistant cap rock will collapse under pressure to add blocks of rock to the base of the waterfall. These blocks of rock are then broken down into smaller boulders by attrition as they collide with each other, and they also erode the base of the waterfall by abrasion, creating a deep plunge pool or gorge.

Streams become wider and shallower just above waterfalls due to flowing over the rock shelf, and there is usually a deep area just below the waterfall because of the kinetic energy of the water hitting the bottom. Waterfalls normally form in a rocky area due to erosion. After a long period of being fully formed, the water falling off the ledge will retreat, causing a horizontal pit parallel to the waterfall wall. Eventually, as the pit grows deeper, the waterfall collapses to be replaced by a steeply sloping stretch of river bed. In addition to gradual processes such as erosion, earth movement caused by earthquakes or landslides or volcanoes can cause a differential in land heights which interfere with the natural course of a water flow, and result in waterfalls.

A river sometimes flows over a large step in the rocks that may have been formed by a fault line. Waterfalls can occur along the edge of a glacial trough, where a stream or river flowing into a glacier continues to flow into a valley after the glacier has receded or melted. The large waterfalls in Yosemite Valley are examples of this phenomenon, which is referred to as a hanging valley. Another reason hanging valleys may form is where two rivers join and one is flowing faster than the other. Waterfalls can be grouped into ten broad classes based on the average volume of water present on the fall (which depends on both the waterfall's average flow and its height) using a logarithmic scale. Class 10 waterfalls include Niagara Falls, Paulo Afonso Falls and Khone Falls.

Classes of other well-known waterfalls include Victoria Falls and Kaieteur Falls (Class 9); Rhine Falls and Gullfoss (Class 8); Angel Falls and Dettifoss (Class 7); Yosemite Falls, Lower Yellowstone Falls and Umphang Thee Lor Sue Waterfall (Class 6); Sutherland Falls (Class 5).


    Ledge Waterfall: Water descends vertically over a vertical cliff, maintaining partial contact with the bedrock.
        Block/Sheet: Water descends from a relatively wide stream or river.
        Classical: Ledge waterfalls where fall height is nearly equal to stream width, forming a vertical square shape.
        Curtain: Ledge waterfalls which descend over a height larger than the width of falling water stream.
    Plunge: Fast moving water descends vertically, losing complete contact with the bedrock surface. The contact is typically lost due to horizontal thrust of the water before it falls. It always starts from a narrow stream.
        Punchbowl: Water descends in a constricted form and then spreads out in a wider pool.
    Horsetail: Descending water maintains good contact with bedrock most of the time.
        Slide: Water glides down maintaining continuous contact.
        Ribbon: Water descends over a long narrow strip.
        Chute: A large quantity of water forced through a narrow, vertical passage.
        Fan: Water spreads horizontally as it descends while remaining in contact with bedrock.
    Cascade: Water descends a series of rock steps.
    Tiered/Multi-step/Staircase: A series of waterfalls one after another of roughly the same size each with its own sunken plunge pool.
    Cataract: A large, powerful waterfall.
    Segmented: Distinctly separate flows of water form as it descends.
    Catadupa: A cataract or waterfall, originally those of the Nile. The term catadupae refers to people inhabiting near such cataracts; there are suppositions that these people are deaf due to the constant din.
    Tide Fall: A waterfall that directly empties into the sea or ocean.
    Frozen: Any waterfall which has some element of ice.

Doing a last minute walk before the sun sets.

Gibbons Park, named in honor of Robert Linus Gibbons, was dedicated during ceremonies conducted on May 19, 1979.  Mr. Gibbons, whose grandparents came to the area from Massachusetts in a covered wagon, was a member of the second graduating class of the University of California at Davis in 1913, at which time it was known as the University Farm School.  In 1914, he married. The marriage lasted 53 years, until his death in 1966 at the age of 73. Maude Gibbons attended the dedication ceremonies, accompanied by several members of her family.


The Gibbons family came to the Carmichael area in 1921, where they became involved in the ranching and dairy business.  The family sold milk directly from the farm until the retail store, Gibbons Dairy located on Walnut Avenue, opened in 1964.  They owned 130 acres in the community where Mr. Gibbons was very active in civic affairs, giving of his time and energy to help make the community a better place to live. He was a charter member of the Carmichael Presbyterian Church and a member of the Carmichael Rotary Club, the Masonic Order, the Board of Trustees of the Carmichael School District, and the Carmichael Farm Bureau.  He was also founder and president of the former Northridge Water District.


Within Gibbons Park is a remnant of the grove of almond and olive trees that the board has designated as the Leif Owre Grove.  On June 28, 1980,  the district and the Ronald Amundsen Lodge #48 of the Sons of Norway conducted ceremonies dedicating the grove in honor of the memory of Leif Owre, who was president of the lodge in 1929, 30, 31, and 35.  Mr. Owen was a former owner of the land where he and his brothers, Anders and Alfred, planted and harvested crops of hay and wheat and tended horses and cattle.  The family planted olive and almond trees that greatly enhanced the beauty of the park, until the 1990’s when they succumbed to age and disease.  Mr. Owre was involved in community and church activities and was an innovator and avid supporter of youth programs in the area.


The open space site at 4701 Gibbons Drive was purchased for $100,000 in 1973 from the school district as a ten-acre parcel and originally designated a neighborhood park. In 1978, the district acquired an additional seven and one half acres of abandoned freeway property (known as Route 143) from the California Department of Transportation for $281,468, which expanded the park acreage from Gibbons Drive to Cypress Avenue.  The 17.5 acre site became the largest park in the district.


In the 1979-80 fiscal year, a master plan for the additional 7.5 acres was prepared for the board’s approval by the county Department of Parks and Recreation’s Planning Division.  The plan included the re-designation from a neighborhood to a community park, and provided for a 12,000 square foot senior citizen/community center on the original ten acres.  The center was completed in 1982, at a cost of $826,987.


The center includes a club room, a crafts room, a large auditorium, a kitchen, offices and counseling rooms, a four-lane shuffleboard court, restrooms, patio, and a 72-space parking lot.  An exercise course designed for senior citizen use was provided next to the center.

We took a quick trip from our resort in Indio to Joshua Tree, the night before Thanksgiving, during our vacation!! THE STARS WERE GORGEOUS!! AMAZING!! HEAVENLY!! This was the last picture that I took of the night. After a few tries in this setup, I decided try the shot one more time. I got into position one last time, and the shutter had just opened when two bright meteors shot right out of the heart of the milky way!! I was so excited, not only because it was the first time I had seen two meteors right after another, but I had gotten them on camera (first as well). I couldn't show my excitement, having to hold still for another 15 seconds, but it was a very special moment. The meteors are hardly visible in the picture, and not visible at all on a mobile device, but it's a memory I'll never forget (I'm only 15 so...). The few of us family members that went to Joshua tree were entreated to celestial surprise (plus the Joshua trees are super cool and quite fascinating)! These are memories I'll never forget!! #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #milkyway #joshuatreemilkyway #thanksgivingmilkyway #stars  #photography #nightphotography #memories #isaacabinantephotography
