Cedar Creek Falls San Diego, Trail from Ramona

Hiked down to Cedar Creek falls. Instead of taking the trail from Julian, I took the lesser known trail from Ramona. The trail down from Julian has an 8 mile unpaved stretch. Taking the train from Ramona, I could avoid that. Since I live in San Diego, the drive down to the trail was a short one.

Here is the google map route for the trail and some photographs from my trek.

Tiger Dance or Hulivesha

Tiger Dance is a unique form of folk dance in Dakshina kannada that fascinates the young and the old alike. Since tiger is considered as the favored carrier of Goddess Sharada (the deity in whose honor Dussera is celebrated), this dance is performed during the Dussera celebration. It is also performed during other festivals like Krishna Janmasthami.
