Ouzel Falls

Katherine and I went up into Allenspark up to the Wild Basin Trailhead in Rocky Mountain National Park. The entrance to the park was right by the venue that my sister got married at a few years ago, so that was a nice memento since just a few weeks ago was their two year anniversary. That was the first time we had gone back to Allenspark since the wedding, so it was nice to hike in an area that we typically don't go to very often.When we got to the trailhead, we got the very last parking spot and started heading to the falls. About 1/8 mile into the hike I stopped, checked my camera and realized I left my SD card in the car, so I had to go back. Good thing I remembered and good thing I caught it before we got to the first photo opportunity!

The hike took us a total of 2 hours and 46 minutes. We were actually moving for an hour and 36 minutes, so it was a pretty relaxing hike with frequent stops for photos! The round trip distance (including my 1/8 mile out and then back to the car for an SD card) was 5.73 miles, with a total elevation gain of 1070 feet.

Photo Notes:

This doesn't look like much of a waterfall, but it is Copeland Falls. It was about 3/4 of a mile from the trailhead, which was a great first break of the hike!

I love taking flowing water photos, but it needs a good perspective still item that doesn't blur with the water .

I guess I wasn't taking enough photos of Katherine. I know this because she told me to take this one!

Bend in the River

Bend in the River

Photo Notes:

The river didn't actually turn 90 degrees like it look in the photo. The lens distortion from the panorama just makes the angle look more than it is.

Photo Notes:

This is just after we forked off of the North Saint Vrain Creek and started following the Cony Creek for just a few hundred feet. We then started heading towards the Ouzel Creek.

Photo Notes:

Everything was so wet around the waterfall. It was constantly misting within a 50 foot radius of the fall.

Photo Notes:

We found this spot just off to the side of the fall to take this photo. The wind was working perfectly in our favor - it wasn't misting at all in this spot.

Photo Notes:

After I took this photo, Katherine crouched down and took the same photo. How rude! So I decided to change it up a little and make it a selective color.
