Hiking Day 3

On our third hike, we took on a section of the Perimeter trail called Box Canyon, which included some of the most incredible sights of the trip.  Monica is not very fond of heights, but she was determined to not let that affect her.  She pushed through her fears on every hike, but this is the one that I was the most proud, as you can see, there was a bridge spanning part of the canyon about 100 feet above the river.  After crossing the bridge, we hiked our way down to the bottom of the canyon, where the trail leads to the a point where the canyon closes up so much that there is an internal waterfall that pounded the rock, extremely loud.

The town of Ouray, vies from the Box Canyon bridge.  That waterfall in the background is the one that was straight up from our cabin.
