Seven Falls

Colorado is a gorgeous state with amazing scenery. This is a picture diary of the beautiful mountains and waterfalls in Seven Falls, also known as the most beautiful mile in Colorado. The pictures here do not do it justice.

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God.

Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature.  I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles. 
- Anne Frank   

There is a nice little restaurant in Seven Falls called 1858. My husband and I have plans to go visit this cute little restaurant during a date night sometime in the future. This sign is placed outside and it explains the meaning behind the restaurant's name and the history behind this beautiful area.

Never lose an opportunity to see anything that is beautiful. It is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament. Welcome it in every fair face, every fair sky, every fair flower.  
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The powers of water are immeasurable. 
In the form of ice, it can chisel rock as effectively as steel. Unloosed in a river, it can slice through
 layers of volcanic ash like a knife through a cake.

 Meandering in a shady stream, 
it can make a home for green growing things.

'So it was beautiful in its greatness, in the length of its branches; For its roots extended to many waters. 'The cedars in God's garden could not match it; The cypresses could not compare with its boughs, And the plane trees could not match its branches No tree in God's garden could compare with it in its beauty. 'I made it beautiful with the multitude of its branches, And all the trees of Eden, which were in the garden of God, were jealous of it. 
Ezekiel 31:7-9

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.  The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn. 
-John Muir
