Cataract Falls, Marin County

   For its water supply, Marin County, California, depends almost entirely on rainfall collected during the winter months in a group of lakes created by small dams high on the slopes of Mount Tamalpais and surrounding hills. Alpine Lake is one of the reservoir lakes and is filled by numerous streams running down from still higher slopes. Cataract Creek is one of these streams and provides a nice series of falls as it makes its way through boulders and fallen trees down to the lake.
