"Brazos Falls" is the name of our 3 day water fall.

There is a small pond on top of the cliffs and it freezes solid in the winter. When the snow on the top starts melting it flows down to the pond and at the same time the pond has started melting. Just before the cliffs is a shady place that stays solid ice for a long time while the water behind it grows larger and larger. Then finally the last ice dam melts enough that the water pushes thru and we have a water fall that lasts 2 to 3 days.

Wow, that looks like some really rugged terrain. Is it possible to hike there (to the pond) or do you have to be a mountain goat?

Hi Tim, there is two ways to get there that I have used. There is a trail up the cliffs about a half mile from the falls and it is very steep and narrow. You better allow hours to get up to the top. If I drive around the cliffs about twenty miles I can get to the top of the mountain range and then about a 2 mile hike thru some dark timber and a few meadows and I can be at the pond. This is private land but I have permission to access the ranch. I go up there in the summer when I am hunting elk and deer.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

That is one dramatic view in Picture No. 1! The trees in the foreground give a sense of real depth to the landscape. Very nice composition--and an interesting story as well. Jay

The story is always good.

I think that not only are the sots spot on, but it is the time taken to find out about it, and plan to be there when it happens. Only a 2-3 day window, if the weather is co-operating.

Well done Roger.
