I made it to denver with just enough time to go on a hike.
A couple of items about this hike:
1. This was up in a mountain, about 45 minutes outside of Denver.
2. I arrived with about an hour before sunset, and there was only 1 car in the dirt lot that I parked in.
I came into this hike already a little sketched out. This was barely a path, and overtaken by nature. It was quiet, only the sound of birds and insects were audible. No people, no cars, just immersed in nature.
I cam across a deer on the trail..literally ON THE TRAIL. It wasnt phased by me, it merely walked a little further away, but continued to graze. I passed the deer and the thought occurred to me as to what other forms of wildlife I might stumble across.
The destination of the trail was a waterfall. However, I probably made it about halfway before deciding to turn back. It was getting dark, and i wasn't down to experience some Blair Witch type stuff that night.
I'm aiming to go back one day, at a decent time with cool people to experience this with.
Experience nature and heal your mind, body and spirit. .
Inhale Deeply...Exhale Slowly...Smile. .
Inhale Love....Exhale Fear...Feel gratitude.
Relax your shoulders...Straighten your spine...Inhale Life...Exhale...that which does not serve you. .
Gaze softly at a beautiful detail of nature and feel love and gratitude for it in your life. .
This is meditation. Meditation Heals.
"murphy take my picture im the king of the world" then i immediately lost my balance and began to fall. maxwell falls was beautiful. murphy fell three times and each time was funnier than the last #maxwellfalls#coloradovacation#hikingwithmybffl
Just about a month ago, I went venturing through Maxwell falls to get some long exposures.
Unfortunately at that time majority of the falls were still covered in ice, but what was unique about the whole experience was what you could hear as I approached the water. Since the flow of water was still moving at a steady pace, you could actually hear an echo below the ice creating this "hot tub" like sound effect.
As I explored more of the falls, I ended up finding some openings where water was flowing freely. Now that summer is in full swing I need to track more water in Colorado!
Anyone have recommendations for reservoirs, falls and rivers to check out? I'm all ears!🤙🧭
