Gravity influences water and causes it to flow to the lowest point. How does this water get to some of San Diego's highest points in the first place? Where does this water come from and why is the waterfall more intense at certain times but not at others? What can waterfalls tell us about Earth cycles?

There are many waterfalls in San Diego County. Some taller waterfalls can be found in East County, such as the Three Sisters Waterfall in Cleveland National Forest.
