Climbing up was easier than picking my way down.
My Garmin F35 battery ran out 60% of the way through the trip.
(Beta blockers kept my HR in check..)
Another hiker went past the falls, found these, and turned back.
She texted a copy of her shot to me.. Much thanks.
Cropped to feature the "big kitty" nature of the fresh prints.
Big feet, long stride, nice that it was heading further up canyon.
Heading down: I trudged by this on the way up.
Bell Canyon trail, below the upper falls, but not much.
Aspen polka dots at the base of the falls.
Aspen polka dots at the falls.

Looking up the falls: mild flow.
Sending my brothers a sketch of the grade over the final mile
The hiker who took the cougar prints shot: she texted it to me.
