Upper Copeland Falls
Copeland Falls/Calypso Cascade/Ouzel Falls Trail
Wild Basin Area
Rocky Mountain National Park

I have posted a number of images of the small but powerful Lower Copeland Falls .. here is the even smaller and more powerful Upper Falls ..

A wonderful intimate place in the dark woods of the Wild Basin area .. Only 0.3 miles from the trailhead .. unless you come at a busy time (weekend or summer afternoon) in which case all but the early birds can often tack a mile onto their walk up this trail as the lots all fill up.

I have replied to a couple people about the eerie feeling of this set .. It comes from a miscalculation on my part .. live and learn .. I thought this would be a fun morning shoot .. but the result of that is that East is to the left .. so I ended up in the dark woods with the sun shining on the face of each cascade .. in a way I think it amplifies the dark mood of these woods.
