After doing a bunch of studying this morning I needed a break, so I decided to go for a walk. Going to Bowmont had been in the back of my mind for a few days, so I thought I’d finally go.

It’s so much fun to finally see flowers blooming. This winter felt especially long and cold, so I’m really enjoying all the pretty flowers. These Buffalo Beans were blooming all over the place today.

Since Bowmont is so big I always have to decide where I’ll go when I park and get out of the car. Today I decided on Waterfall Valley cause I’d only been there once or twice since the winter. I think it’s one of the most peaceful parts of Bowmont cause it’s never very busy. This morning I only came across one person.

Halfway into the valley trees start growing so the boardwalk is shady. It’s pretty nice on hot days when the sun is beating down.

This is the largest of the three waterfalls, though it’s still not exactly big.

This is where the little creek that runs through the bottom of the valley meets the Bow River.

Although my walk was under half an hour, most of the walk back from the river was uphill. My legs were definitely feeling it by the time I got back to the car.
