Ouzel Lake and Falls – Wild Basin Area – July 29, 2018

After Scott’s big trek yesterday, we wanted to take it a little easy today.  We chose an easy hike with lots of waterfalls at Wild Basin.

EA2D9F97-E53C-4BDB-9E2F-4359D0A6FD89Ouzel Falls was an easy trail with limited elevation gain.  Of course, there was still a warning sign to keep us alert and cautious.

  • Love, love that you are spending so much time in the glory that is Colorado. The video reminded me so much of the stream we used to camp by near Glenwood Spgs. when I was a kid. I would see how far I could go in the middle of the stream by climbing over all the downed timber and rocks. Thanks for that memory. Love you
