Just before I made it to the first of four or five #ForestLakes, I came across this beautiful #waterfall. The trail pretty much follows this stream from the #SouthBoulderCreek to the Forest Lakes. Just about all trails in the #mountains follow streams, because they take the path of least resistance.

The water flows year around most years and is 100% fed by the #glaciers that persist all year at these altitudes. The #creeks and #lakes are all loaded with #trout and it's a wonder how they all get there.

While I don't live in the #mountains yet, that's where my heart is. I spend a lot of time visiting them and will always come back. I always feel #free when on the move, even on a #roadtrip, but never as free as when I'm alone on the #trail where it's just me, the mountains and the wind.
