Browns Creek trail

Jill's friend Grace, from back in medical residency days, is vacationing in Colorado, doing some fly fishing. We managed to meet up with Grace in Salida CO for a day of hiking. Based on some quick online research, we decided on the Browns Creek trail, in the national forest about halfway between Salida and Buena Vista. That turned out to be a good choice; we were ready for a lower-key day after two days of fourteeners. The trail description mentioned some small waterfalls, I'd say this one is larger than we were expecting; that's Jill and Grace in the picture. We timed the hike perfectly, too; we turned around after about 4 miles and 1500', and by the time we were driving back into town the afternoon thunderstorms had started.
