I started the day with a hike to Camp Creek Falls. I was blown away by the beauty of this waterfall. Photos just don't do the forest justice, you need to experience it for yourself.
Further up the road I scrambled up to Washout Falls where I got my shoes wet. Thankfully I thought to bring a second pair of shoes and socks.
At Pinto Creek Falls, I scrambled up the hillside for closer photos where I got my second pair of shoes and socks wet. Thankfully Jeeps have excellent heaters. Barefoot I drove...
By the time I got to the turnaround point on the road to Sunrise Peak, my shoes and socks were dry enough for another hike. It was a hefty climb just to the trailhead, and I decided to come back another day to tackle the actual hike to the peak.
I need to bring a better camera to photograph the elk. My little iPhone just doesn't cut it when zooming.
It was a day full of discovery that won't be soon forgotten.
