Bridal Veil Falls, Clark Wyoming

Yesterday we took a hike to Bridal Veil Falls just west of Clark, Wyoming in the Clarks Fork Canyon. It's about a 45-minute drive from Cody and well worth the trip.

 

got your six outdoors veterans clubThe hike was organized by "Got Your Six Outdoors Club". This is a group of veterans and civilians partnering together to raise awareness of PTSD and encourage veterans to participate in outdoor activities and build relationships.

 

 

I forced my children to participate, which involved some whining and complaining by one of them but that died down once we got moving. By the end of the hike he was talking about how much fun it was. Especially after he downed a few hotdogs and hamburgers. This kid can eat!

 

walking the trail next to the riverWe had heavier-than-usual snowfall this year and it's starting to melt. I've never seen the river this high! We made sure to keep the kids away from it, which wasn't hard to do because the trail is about 100 yards away from the river banks. We still had to cross the creek in a few difficult spots.

 

 

Standing in front of bridal veil fallsIt was about 2.5 miles to Bridal Veil Falls and well worth the effort. Because of the terrain, only about 10% of the hikers actually went to the bottom. Those of us that did were in and out quickly because the temperatures were very low!

 

It was a great group of people and an amazing day for a hike. Whether you are a local or a visitor, I highly recommend making the effort to visit Bridal Veil Falls.

I love a good hike, especially one that ends in a mountain lake, a waterfall or being on top of a large peak :-) Looks like a beautiful place and sounds like a great group of people. -Kasey

It was a lot of fun, Kasey. It's normally very windy there but it wasn't too bad and the weather was just right. Hard to beat!

Plenty of opportunities for photography but I'm limited by my phone camera. :(

The terrain was pretty flat most of the way so it was limited exercise and a great way to kick off the summer. Thanks for commenting, Gabe!

"pulling" is the correct term, Ginny! My son was not happy to go but then he raved about it afterwards. We just have to do it more often so he remembers how much fun it is.

It was not only beautiful, it was very easy. It was more of a walk than a hike. Thanks for commenting, Joan!

Thanks, Endre. It's a newer organization, tailored to raise awareness about PTSD and suicide among vets.

Beautiful scenery, Nathan, which even I who is not an outdoor type of girl can appreciate. Our daughter did her PhD at the University of Wyoming. (She is an outdoor girl.)

I grew up in Oregon, surrounded by large trees and the inability to see long distances. The Wyoming landscape is often dry and desolate, but beautiful in its own respect. Thanks for commenting, Nina!
