We had an absolute blast exploring the Silver Thread Scenic Byway this last week. Fall color was peak awesomeness and I finally got to check out North Clear Creek Falls! Ever since I first saw a photo of these falls years ago I have been wanting to visit. Now that I have I would have to call this a somewhat hidden gem that easily is one of our finest waterfalls in the state.
In some ways these falls remind me of a western Colorado version of Palouse Falls in Washington, which is high praise indeed. We see them lit here by the full moon that followed last week's lunar eclipse (which was also awesome).
