A Traveler and his Cat exploring America.

Not a Good Idea

I went hiking to explore some of the nearby canyons of this area.

One of them dead-ended to what would be a great waterfall when the rains happen.
Not a place to be when this occurs as the water could be like a flash flood.
I thought I would try to get up top.  I could go up to the left and 

beneath the fall and around up on the right.
It looked doable. 

But once I climbed the left part and got even with the traverse things took a whole new perspective.

Ah...nope, I don't think I ought to try this.

A couple of you asked about the geocache so I went back to get a picture for you.
Inside just the usual trinket stuff.  I didn't leave a note but did leave one of my blog cards in the box.
The notebook reads that this cache was set up by the Class of 2016 of Telluride H.S. and they set the cache in place on Sept. 17, 2010.  How about that!  Seven years ago this coming Sunday.

Impressive rocks up there.

Better to stay on the safe side of that potential waterfall. You don't want to become a statistic. I've been geocaching with my son a couple of times, great fun as you never know what you will find.

Better to be safe when you are on your own!

Yes, that looks too slick, too steep, and no good toeholds. Looks like a beautiful area, and cool about the geocache!

Did you leave anything else besides your card?
