Having been in the mountains for a week, and being finished with yard work, we decided on a short hike up "Oh-Be Joyful" to see the waterfall.
On the way up the valley, we again commented on the exceptional greenness of the mountains this summer.
The wildflowers were profuse and
Snow still remained on the mountain tops, in August!!
The creek ran heavily down the valley carrying logs and depositing them at will.
The falls were full and fortunately void of kayaks. A huge log span the creek just below the falls.
Looking up the valley above the falls one could see the mountain peaks, and a distant large waterfall.
The way back to our car provided this special view of Mt Crested Butte near home.
