After doing the Vai Ferrata, we dicide to hike up to Blue Lake in the Bridal Veil Basin.
This hike followed the Bridal Veil Creek for a while.
There were a ton of waterfalls all around.
And a couple of stream crossings
Snow bridge. Most likely snow leftover from an avalanche
We followed a jeep road and quickly got high above the Telluride Valley
More leftover snow from avalanches
I did say there was a lot of waterfalls
Just follow the jeep road
Getting close to the lake now. Looking back the way we came. Awesome veiws.
There was a lot of mining structures up here
Nice views from this structure
There structures look like they have been maintained
Last sections until the Lake.
Old mining equipment with Blue Lake in the background
It was still very much frozen
but not frozen enough to walk out on
not sure what the purpose of this is
Heading back down. Great veiw of the mountains above Telluride
swampy area about the minning buildings
flowers were out
More waterfalls on the way down
The sunlight was hitting just the waterfall making it stand out.
