Bakersville Waterfall Hike

This beautiful waterfall is one of the many you

can see on your drive up I 70 into the mountains from Denver.

Upon spotting it one day, we decided

we might it might be a really good hike.

In both beauty

and challenge

our hike didn't


In some ways,

it actually exceeded


I really never been

afraid of heights,

or climbing.

As a child I was always the first or second one to climb an obstacle course,

or jump a stream.  When they say having kids makes you more cautious ,

I had no idea, it would catch up to me on this hike.

My center of balance has changed, and somewhere near the top I slipped and realized...

What goes up must come down.  Needless to say,  we found an alternate route down and I'm becoming a little more cautious in my old age :0)
