My 2nd trip up to Grant Falls after seeing them for the 1st time 2 weeks ago.
I HAD to go back, Preston was in town and it was mandatory that he saw this gem before the great snow melt flow over disappears soon. Preston arrived meeting me at Roper Lake and on a swollen gimpy ankle :o :(
We took off to and through Fort Grant then onto FR 157 arriving at the first creek crossing that was flowing heavy. Decided against the crossing, parked and started our hike from there.

First mile was warm open country :next: we then entered the shaded scenic Grant Creek forest :next: 3 icy cold creek crossings :next: hung a right up Grant Creek Canyon :next: .75 miles up and 1 more creek cross and we were at the base of the falls ..... I remember Preston saying Wow, I did too!
We spent an hour at the falls getting pics, snacking, resting and just taking it all in before returning back the way we came.

The falls again were Awesome, but I was just as impressed with Preston on this day completing that hike on his bad ankle!
Preston is a tough :pk: and a hell of a lot of fun to adventure with -
Thank You my friend!
Great Trip!
:D
