Sherman Falls

(nr Lake City CO)
From my camp at Cataract Gulch, I hiked a different trail to find Sherman Falls. Across the road was a path leading to an old mining road. There was no signage to find the way; but, someone told me about it. So, off I went.

Sherman Falls – On the Trail

It was probably 1/2 mile to the falls viewpoint at the edge of a cliff. Seeing the falls between the trees was very difficult. I attempted a couple of different paths, but with equally poor line of sight.

Looking Down

The water emerged from a gap in the cliffs on the other side of a deep gorge. I would guess the drop was 200ft or more. I could not see all the way to the bottom of the canyon. Anyway, these shots were the best I could get using telephoto-zoom.

My camp at Cataract Gulch included seeing deer and a moose, several hikes, creeks, cascades, waterfalls, and beautiful mountain views. Couldn’t ask for better!
