Colorado waterfalls

colorado waterfallThis post is dedicated to my buddy Rob, in Germany, who has seen a few waterfalls of late.

Anyhow, Heather and I managed to get away for one night to celebrate our anniversary (about three weeks late). We stayed near Estes Park. Since we love hiking, we sent for a four-hour hike in Rocky Mountain National Park - the Ouzel Falls Hike. It was excellent - offering more waterfalls than I have ever seen in one hike in Colorado. And we got to talk about life in a way that normal life does not allow. Priceless.

By the way, "Ouzel" is not some ancient explorer, but rather the name of a bird that has been spotted in that area.

This photo is not even Ouzel Falls... it is just one of the waterfalls on the way up to Ouzel.

So if you're ever in Colorado with a few hours to spare...

It must be waterfall season. I went to Niagara Falls this week.
Colorado has always sounded wonderful, with a lot to offer.
"And we got to talk about life in a way that normal life does not allow"- for Spouse and I, there's nothing like a car journey to do that kind of talking.
