On a beautiful summer morning I entered the waters of Warm Springs Creek where it meets Strawberry Creek at the trail head of the South Lake Trail of Lake Sonoma Recreational Area via Old Skaggs Springs Road. Did you get all of that?
The air was pleasant and the water was cool. Heading up stream I encountered this little water fall with a mysterious grove of trees above. I took the photograph and moved slowly on up the creek.
Later, when I was reviewing my images from the day I saw the troll! He was carved into the rock just above the falls. He was caught by the sunlight and turned to stone. Thus, Troll Hollow.
