It wasn't all pretty views though- we also had some shenanigans, which involved climbing on icicles, falling in the mud, scaling a snowbank and promptly falling off and other general nonsense.
I definitely want to make another trip out in nicer weather to visit again and see the lower falls. It's been a long time since I've been here!
All in all a pretty fun few hours!

Last week I had the chance to make a stop at Letchworth Falls- the first time I'd been there in the winter. A lot of the park was shut down, but we were able to park at Glen Iris Inn and walk down to the falls. The first awesome thing we happened upon was a frozen fountain. As the water from the fountain froze it created an ice cone around the fountain, with just a little water still coming all the way through- it was pretty cool to see. We also stopped at a few pull offs on our way out to get some other views of the gorge and the falls.
All The Crooked Saints
By Maggie Stiefvater
Here is a thing everyone wants: a miracle.
Here is a thing everyone fears: what it takes to get one.
Any visitor to Bicho Raro, Colorado is likely to find a landscape of dark saints, forbidden love, scientific dreams, miracle-mad owls, estranged affections, one or two orphans, and a sky full of watchful desert stars.
At the heart of this place you will find the Soria family, who all have the ability to perform unusual miracles. And at the heart of this family are three cousins longing to change its future: Beatriz, the girl without feelings, who wants only to be free to examine her thoughts; Daniel, the Saint of Bicho Raro, who performs miracles for everyone but himself; and Joaquin, who spends his nights running a renegade radio station under the name Diablo Diablo.
They are all looking for a miracle. But the miracles of Bicho Raro are never quite what you expect.
A Conspiracy of Stars
By: Olivia A. Cole
Octavia has only ever had one goal: to follow in the footsteps of her parents and become a prestigious whitecoat, one of the scientists who study the natural wonders of Faloiv. The secrets of the jungle’s exotic plants and animals are protected fiercely in the labs by the Council of N’Terra, so when the rules suddenly change, allowing students inside, Octavia should be overjoyed.
But something isn’t right. The newly elected leader of the Council has some extremist views about the way he believes N’Terra should be run, and he’s influencing others to follow him. When Octavia witnesses one of the Faloii—the indigenous people of Faloiv—attacked in front of her in the dark of night, she knows the Council is hiding something. They are living in separate worlds on a shared planet, and their fragile peace may soon turn into an all-out war.
With the help of Rondo, a quiet boy in class with a skill for hacking, and her inquisitive best friend, Alma, Octavia is set on a collision course to discover the secrets behind the history she’s been taught, the science she’s lived by, and the truth about her family
