Adams Falls

Way over on the southwest side of the Rocky Mountain National Park, we hiked to Adams Falls. It was a short, but hot, hike and we opted not to go on to the lakes that lie beyond the falls. By the falls, the mist was cool and the noise of the rushing water  blocked out all other sounds. These are large trees and boulders in the pictures.

One of the interesting features of this waterfall is the turn. The water came cascading over what is, no doubt, rock bottom and hit a canyon wall on which we stood; then it squeezes through a very narrow turn and continues on its way toward the large lake (Grand Lake) below.
