Hanging Lake Waterfall Number Two

There was plenty to see around the first waterfall and lake.  Charity and Stacie even ventured out to the middle of the lake.

Ever the climbers.  They found a great spot for a picture.

I love this shot.

It was nice having grandpa along on this hike.  He was a big help, taking turns carrying Shiloh.

Waterfall number two comes right out of  the middle of the rock.   Quite a phenomenon.

Peering down from the top of a waterfall is always an eerie  feeing.

Hanging Lake

The best hikes are the tough ones. Especially when the view from the top is something truly rewarding, 

like a waterfall, or a lake.

Hanging lake has two waterfalls, and a lake.

The girls found a great place to stop and rest. 

The lake is a shade of green, I've never seen before.

Simply beautiful.

All the Pretty Horses ~ Horse Ranch Near Rifle Falls

We found this lovely horse ranch on our trip to Rifle.

Horses are such beautiful creatures.
No ranch is complete with our a mansion ~~ I mean ranch house.

and out buildings. 
The  barn is very decorative with the square window near the peak of the roof. 
Deffinately worthy of a submission to Barn Charm.

Be sure to check out all the other Barn Charm submissions.
