Horsetail Falls

We have done this hike before but never in the Fall.  It was neat to get to climb down on the rocks that are normally covered in rushing Spring water.  The views were glorious, the company fantastic.  I'll let the pictures tell the rest...

Smoochy smoochy

The weather came in fast as did the cold.

Going "off trailing" on a long fallen tree

We got down from the trail just in time as we saw it snowing up at the waterfall.  We warmed up and then the two crazy boys decided to do a mountain biking ride on "Mr Toad's Wild Ride", a very technical downhill trail after burning some major calories in the uphill climb.  Joe's hands were unfrozen for a moment for him to take this photo.

It was an active day and I loved it.  Its so wonderful to get out hiking and breathing the fresh icy air and  enjoy the beauty of God's creation!
