Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls Professional Review and Guide

"Meadows and aspen groves surround the way to a waterfall easy to imagine from its name. In spring, this may be the most interesting and spectacular waterfall in the national park. Waterfalls commonly have been named for a common item of wedding attire, so Rocky Mountain National Park also has its Bridal Veil Falls.

It seems unfortunate that a name made mundane by overuse should label what may be the most unusual and interesting waterfall in the national park. No less dull would be The Falls or merely Waterfall. Bridal Veil Falls is doubly cursed by being formed by Cow Creek, a name saved from equal dullness only by alliteration. When bolstered by melting snow, Cow Creek bursts over a ledge and crashes into a basin whose form throws the water back into the air."
