By Tom Modugno of Goleta History
Goleta has some beautiful waterfalls in our front country. Unfortunately, they only appear for a short period after a good rain. Of the 2 pictured, one is above the La Patera/Glen Annie area and another is off Old San Marcos road and runs into the Maria Ygnacio creek. The problem here is both of them seem to share the same name, Widow’s Tears. Can a legitimate old time Goleta resident give a definitive answer to this question? Which one is really Widow’s Tears?
