Lots of Waterfalls

Last summer, Unni and I went for a hike on the Thomas Trail, on the north side of Pikes Peak. You start by walking up a street in the small town of Green Mountain Falls, and crossing over a wooden bridge.
From there the trail leads steeply up, with various waterfalls next to the path.
Then the trail winds around a mountainside with steep, high dropoffs in places. Yes, this is the trail.
And this leads to - another stream and more waterfalls!
If you like waterfalls and can handle a trail with steep rocky sections and some heights, this is the the place for you. And that's my Scenic Sunday entry for the week. (Socks loved this hike - here's a photo of him resting on one of the many rocks.)

  2. I think Sylvia said it best - what breathtaking captures! It makes me want to pack up my water bottle and go for a long hike!

  3. Terrific photos. I wish there some waterfalls close to me. I shouldn't complain, Niagara Falls is only about 2 hours away.
