Late this morning Diane and I headed over to No Thoroughfare Canyon in the Colorado National Monument for a short hike. I didn’t take many photos today, but I did want to share a couple since there was the most snow on the ground that I’ve seen in this canyon. We hiked to the base of the First Waterfall where we ate lunch and watched a lone ice climber. There was a packed trail the entire way but we did find our microspikes helpful on a couple of steep sections of the trail and on some of the ice we encountered.
A lot of snow at the start of the No Thoroughfare Canyon trail.
The First Pool had a nice iced-over waterfall with water running underneath.

Snow and sandstone.
