60 runtotal  about 5.5 today - very nice day with good friends!




One Canada Goose on one side of canyon way up high

Another Canada Goose on the other side, calling to its mate

Reunion!

Are they thinking of nesting up there?!


American Dippers!!!!!














Lots of big trees to hug!



Midnight Falls - very pretty in person


St. Mary's Falls from Inspiration Point trail


Mt. Rosa, Stove Cook Mt., St. Mary's Falls



Colorado Springs from Inspiration Point

Mt. Muscoco and Buffalo Creek Canyon behind from Inspiration Point


Some old ruins off the Sunshine trail near Old Stage Road - wish I could time travel





Almaghre

Sapsucker wells

Helen Hunt Jackson's old grave


awesome big cave seen across the way - looks very hard to access


Just about my favorite tree stump ever!

Probably a Ute Prayer tree



This tree is really big.




Wonder what they were blasting out.

Beautiful photos! I would like to visit Seven Falls again. I have only been there once - when I was young and the falls were all frozen. What a great tree stump you found!

Thanks again, Carol. I think you would like it. It has changed a little since the floods - the Broadmoor bought it and changed it so that people can't drive in anymore. You can get a shuttle from the Broadmoor to the entrance and then walk up the canyon or take a little tram or whatever they call those open air bus things.
