It took a while to reach the first Headwall Lake and the struggle to get there was all worth it. The sun shone on us here and that offered a reprieve along with pretty reflections.
This! A very steep up over a short distance that took an hour. I tell you, as we neared the summit, I had a melt-down moment. I said "what have I gotten myself into" and I near wolfed my cookies! G said 'not right now"! We reached the summit, it wasn't all that wide, the rain turned to sleet! I looked over the other side and it was an even steeper drop and that was where we had to go to get down. Do I need my head examined! My Mom use to tell me that when I would do something stupid! My friend lead the way, I followed so closely behind, making sure to dig in my heals and lean back. I needed him closely in front of me to block the view of this steep down. I could only see his back and my feet. Once at the bottom, I let out a sigh and hoisted up my pants which had taken a big downhill trip of their own!When I did look around along this adventure, there was lots to see. It may not have been the sunniest and driest day but clouds can play tricks on the mountains and the moisture can make greens greener. It takes lots of water to make a beautiful waterfall....
...and a beautiful rainbow! Any day that ends with a vista like this, has to be considered golden!
