Full Time RV Travel: Seven Falls Colorado Springs CO

 

Although you can’t really tell it by looking at the pics. . .

there really are seven distinct and separate waterfalls. . .

each one as beautiful as the last. . .

but the only true way to see each and every one of them distinctively

Just a portion of the 277 steps to the top of Seven Falls

is to climb the two staircases like this one, totaling 224 steps. . .

I heard one of the guys telling someone that when you get

short winded. . .don’t stop. ..cause then your legs will freeze up. . .

great huh. . .I climbed 10 steps. . .rested. . .10 steps. . .rested. . .

and so on, and so forth. . .of course I pretended to be reading

the signs about each waterfall. . .hey, whatever works!

I love, love, love this horsetail fall, with the pool at the bottom. . .

You know how you always read in those historical romances. . .

(I mean novels) about bathing under the waterfall. . .

can’t you just imagine that happening here?  So beautiful. . .

So. . .as if climbing 224 stairs straight up wasn’t enough. . .

we decided to hike an additional mile and 400 more feet in elevation. . .
