Helen Hunt Falls

We had company for the 4th of July weekend this year. Two of Lyle's brothers and their families were in the area. On Saturday we drove into the mountains outside of Colorado Springs to hike along Helen Hunt Falls.
Some of us only made it up to the bridge over the falls looking out over the parking lot.
 It was lovely shady place to sit on the rocks and enjoy the splashing stream tumbling over the rocks.
The men and kids hiked on up the mountain. I'm not sure where it took them and or what they saw, but I guess it was a pretty good hike.
They stopped at the bridge on the way back down.
No telling what the brothers were talking about... but they enjoyed being together. They don't get to see each other very often, since one lives in Kansas, one in Idaho, and one in Colorado.
We look forward to finding other pretty places to hike around here.
