There was anticipation the morning we left for Ridgway State Park. It was to be the place that the four of us set up camp in order to visit Ouray and Telluride. There was only time for a day trip to both places, but that was ok. This gave us time to walk the main streets of both towns and visit some yummy eating/drinking establishments. Each town has that distinct small-town-looking Main Street with cute, kitschy shops; great hipster watching; and a mountain ...
... of the views were spectacular, and breathtaking. We also drove down a park service road to the bottom of the canyon at the east end, to get an up close
and personal view of the river and of the dam up river of the canyon. The drive alone was an experience, with the road sometimes at a 16% grade; of course there were many restrictions on what vehicles were allowed on this road. After leaving the Black Canyon NP we headed west on US 50 to the ...

2:10 - Continue on the trail. The Upper Cascade Falls is only 3 miles from the trail head. I think to myself, this shouldn't be too bad. I used to run 3 miles before work with my sister.

2:45 - Stopping along the trail to take pictures - no joke, it so beautiful!
