July 21 - Hiking near Estes Park

These pictures are from a hike we took in Rocky Mountain National Park,  The first set of waterfalls along the trail are called Calypso Cascades.

A little further - Copland Falls

This was the view from the trail

The last fall was the tallest - Ouzel Falls

The bridge was out over the river here, so we watched the crew working to rebuild it.  We especially liked that this young woman was sawing while her buddy sat on the log.

Here are some of my favorite birds, animals and flowers that we saw on the hike:

Chipmunk and red paintbrush
Moss in a heart
Fat-faced chipmunk

Mariposa lily

Some kind of woodpecker!

On the way home, we stopped to see this amazing church - called The Chapel on the Rock
