The view from the start of our hike:
Bridal Veil Falls:
This was a great hike ... the trailhead goes to both Bridal Veil Falls and to Lake Serene. J. has hiked Lake Serene in the past and really enjoyed it, but it's a pretty challenging hike. Lots of elevation gain over a few miles which equals lots of uphill! But Bridal Veil Falls was very manageable, there was a little bit of elevation gain at the very end but overall not too bad. After we finished the hike, we stopped by a little diner near Index for a milkshake. This was the view from their back porch (if you look VERY closely, you can see Bridal Veil Falls right above the treetops):
Then we headed into Index to check out Index Town Wall, which is supposed to be great for rock climbing. J. and G.S. are very into rock climbing. Me? Not so much. I'll watch, thanks.
