{07june2011: serene part 2}

Here's where we left off. (If you missed part one of the hike, read it here.)
After hiking in for about 1.7 miles we got to a sign that pointed us in the direction of Bridal Veil Falls or Lake Serene.

We thought it would probably be better to take the .5 mile detour to the falls before doing the rest of the hike since it would be a short hike. I wouldn't say it was a mistake, but MAN what a detour!

These were about one of 50 flights of stairs (ok, not really 50, but A LOT).
These steps kept taking us higher and higher and over streams and waterfalls.
Very pretty waterfalls I must say. But we just kept climbing and climbing, I swear it was longer than half a mile, and finally got to some wooden walkways where you could see the spray from the waterfall.
It was amazing! It was hard to stand there too long as we were getting soaked and cold!



We still have the hike to the lake to go! Check back for the last part of our hike!

  8. Looks like Darwin had more than enough energy for the climb. That really is a beautiful location. But 'cold'?! It's going to be close to 100F here tomorrow. Is envy still a sin?
