Seven Falls

A couple of weeks ago Jen and I headed to Colorado Springs to kick around for the day. The Springs really is a great little day trip from Denver, with a lot of museums, historical sights, and plenty of natural beauty.

One of the tourist traps there that neither of us had ever visited was Seven Falls, named for the seven water falls that descend the canyon. While there was an air of exploitation around the place (3 gift shops!) the area was undeniably beautiful, and the hike up the stairs to the top of the falls was exciting.

While I don't know that I would ever go twice, I was really happy to get Seven Falls marked off on my list of "Things to See in Colorado." We had a really fun morning there, and had a great time wandering about and shooting photos, which is a fairly typical weekend around here.
