A rainbow forms in the mist sprayed by Rifle Falls in Rifle Falls State Park on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains. A nice place to visit and camp in the walk-in tentsites (which are spectacular especially with kids - I don't understand why people like camping in movable homes). The falls are an easy walk from the walk-in tentsites either through a nice trail with lots of wild turkeys or over the dirt road. The falls themselves are overdeveloped and overvisited but very pretty and nice and cool on a record heat day in Colorado. Certainly a far cry from all the wildfires in the state at the moment. My heart goes out to all those affected. I'll post more later.

Falls. Buy a print.
