Waterfall on a Hot Summer Day
It was a hot summer afternoon and we were willing to take the hike to get to the waterfall. We have been here before and the waterfall and the views are worth the effort. This is one of those hikes that you start off with a well marked trail and then it seems as if the signs disappear. Normally a trail will be marked with a sign like the one above but what happens when you reach a spot that looks like this?
You look a little closer and a little higher up. Here I will zoom in for you.
If you click the photo you will find the little diamond shaped trail marker.
Our reward was this fantastic waterfall. It is so big it won't fit in one frame of the camera. The boys spent a lot of time climbing up and down the granite and then they eventually took their shoes off and waded in a bit.
I immediately took my hiking shoes and socks off and had my feet soaking in the ice cold snow water. I even dipped my head in and let my hair get wet. Why is hubby so wet?
He decided to go all the way in! Not for very long though....it took his breath away.
One wildflower photo....not many left on this hike at this time of the summer.
One interesting photo....look at his feet! He was hiking on the same trail as we were with no shoes on. I could hardly believe it.
Great afternoon, even if I did get cranky and hot. I am not always the cheerful nature study girl. :)
