Tuesday 16th June 2015….a hiking day!!!

Drove about one hour this morning to

where I planned to do three hikes that I had not done before….

The first one was to a small waterfall called the hole in the wall…I wonder why!!!!

It was only about a ten minute hike to it

In 1960 they blasted this hole to allow water to flow through to the town’s main water supply!!!

I then went back up the trail and around over the top crossed this log

and came out on the other side of the hole

and then I walked downstream about 500 yards and came to another wonderful waterfall

Back in the car and went about 15 minutes to the next trail head

This was an easy hike and it brought back memories of my favorite hike in San Miguel when I go to the deep canyon with the suspension bridge..because I came across one on this hike

This trail led to wonderful views or Sprout lake!!!

This was a nice spot for the first of my sandwiches!!!

Next was Weiner Falls, a funny name, but I found this hike on the internet and it was described has a hidden gem and I think it was do you!!!!

A drive along a narrow logging road

and then maybe a 15 minute hike, by the way I was way out in the boonies, and then finally down this bank holding onto the ropes…

This really was a great day and on the way home I had to stop and get this because it is an unwritten rule if you visit three waterfalls in one day this is the reward!!!!
