Ouzels Roar

Ouzel Falls, Rocky Mountain National Park

I have never seen Ouzel Falls so powerful. Its roar was intense as the water rushed down Ouzel Creek as part of the spring runoff. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Ouzel from Below

Ouzel Falls, Wild Basin, Rocky Mountain National Park

Following a winter of heavy snowfall, Ouzel Creek was flowing as strongly as I had ever seen it causing Ouzel Falls to loudly roar and throw a blanket of thick mist up into the air around its base. This beautiful waterfall is located in the Wild Basin section of Rocky Mountain National Park and is one of the prime destinations for hikers to the area. The trail to the falls leads through deep forest and alongside mountain streams providing a beautiful and enjoyable experience of this amazing national park. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Ouzel Falls, Rocky Mountain National Park

One of the most popular hikes in the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park is to Ouzel Falls. It's a great family destination which winds through the woods to this impressive little waterfall on Ouzel Creek. The name given to this stream and later to this waterfall originated with Enos Mills, who noticed this to be an area frequented by the bird of the same name. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.

Ouzel Falls is one of the more difficult waterfalls in the park to capture. Its hidden position and the bright sky behind it make the photographer work for an image they can keep. Photo © copyright by Erik Stensland.
