Calypso Cascades

Friday was our next-to-the-last chance to hike before our return home this week. We hiked up to "Calypso Cascades", a round trip hike of 3.6 miles (5.8 kilometers). This hike has a nice increase in altitude (about 800 feet, which is approx.240 meters). Here is a picture of the trail: However, this trail has an advantage that it is a gradual incline part of the way, and only the end is really steep. And all along that gradual incline are small waterfalls. So the scenery makes the effort definately worthwhile. Ricki took the hike fairly well (despite occaisional insistings that she was NOT going further), and even smiled for the camera on occaision. (Those pics will be for a later post.....but here's a video of the falls)(It's much more impressive in real life....)
