Hiking in Colorado...

We thought we took a wrong turn and stopped to turn around. 


What we found was a trail, and a creek,

Crossing... "Be careful! Don't slip!"
"Ha! Ha! We made it!!!"
Crossing back... "Don't fall!!!
 
Oops! "Now you have a story to tell, Noodle."

a cave, 


 and some amazing views.

  

We later found Seven Falls and hiked a little more.

 

There were chipmunks everywhere! 


They knew those silly humans were suckers for a cute face!

Wow, a wonderful place, love the rabbit (?) in the last pic especially, what's he/she had in the mouth? Not a bit of grass certainly. Greetings from China and welcome to my blog to have a look of my tour path.

Colorado is beautiful! Glad you got to enjoy it. We took the motorcycles up there 3 years ago and rode 6 days. The stairs looked like a workout!
btw, I'm from Oklahoma too.

SO jealous!! I could totally use a fall int he creek with Noodle instead of falling in my pools of sweat in the 112 degree heat here!! ;)

I love cool summer hikes. This was a true find. Waterfall, cave, that trail had it all!

Where exactly were you hiking? I live in Colorado Springs? Were you up by Helen Hunt Falls, or possibly Glen Eyrie?
