Seven Falls Cheyenne Canyon Colorado

Seven Falls is a 181ft waterfall that cascades down in seven distinctive steps. Frozen waterfalls aren't nearly as interesting as the flowing ones. This was the most snow I saw during my entire Colorado trip. Climbing the stairs to get this shot was exhausting. It might not look like much with this photo, but factor in the cold weather, thin air and steep incline and you got yourself one hell of a workout. And this was only the halfway point! There is a total of 224 steps to reach the peak and this was the first set. I'm not the type to quite halfway so I proceeded to finish the treacherous stairway from hell. Was it worth it? Not one bit. But now I can at least say I did it. As I'm sure most of you shutterbugs have done similar things in seek of the perfect shot.
