Bridal Veil Falls

What do you do when it’s starts to snow in Telluride and your on your Fall Photo Tour? Well you get in your 4WD off-road vehicle and head up to the box canyon behind Telluride and drive up the dirt road to the top of Bridal Veil Falls. Bridal Veil Falls is a 365 Foot waterfall overlooking the town of Telluride. The power plant sits at the top of the falls.  In the winter it becomes frozen and is a huge challenge for ice climbers.

The color on the side of the box canyon was tremendous and so we headed up the off-road trail to the top. It’s a tremendous view, but totally worth the trip. Snow mixed with the fall colors made for some excellent opportunities to capture some unique scenes!  This image is of Bridal Veil falls and the box canyon with a touch of snow and the gorgeous fall colors dotting the side of the canyon.
