Silken Skein Falls

This past summer I finally ventured out onto Hyalite Trail far enough to see some of the other waterfalls. This particular one is named Silken Skein Falls. It was definitely worth the hike. It's a very gorgeous area. In fact, I'm glad I did a little research before going or I would have thought I'd found it when I found the bottom set of falls. The water cascades down a set of small drops. I will admit to being a bit confounded because I expected to find a larger falls that looked more like a sheet of water. I was turning around, giving up the ghost, when I took a really close look at the other shore. I realized that the trail picked up across the river. Boy am I glad I took a closer look. Definitely one of the more amazing spots I've ever been and well worth exploring.
