On the way down the mountain we stopped at my favorite place to explore near Mt. Evans. This river, with its many little waterfalls, is just off the main road on the Idaho Springs side.

The water is so cold

I feel truly blessed that in under one hour I can be in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. This is why I live here.
