Mr. D and I didn't have a whole day for a hike, so he suggested that we hike to Bridal Veil Falls, which is an off-shoot of the Lake Serene Trail. He also said that it should be a fairly gentle hike—famous last words!
The scenery along the trail was worth it, however. Here an old growth stump serves as a nurse tree for two of its grandchildren.
After a half hour of very, very careful hiking, we finally reached the falls. It was pretty spectacular, but I'm still not sure it was worth negotiating all those rocks.
The views out across the valley were spectacular, too
Once we got back to the main trail, we walked a little further and stopped for a snack by this small waterfall, which I liked even better than the roaring falls above it. And I didn't have to climb over a single rock to enjoy this one!
