WATERFALLS THAT By Bette Erickson

WOW

Go ahead – Enjoy the splash. When summer sizzles, these waterfalls will cool, refresh, and energize you. Waterfalls and icy pools of water go together. Following you’ll find several waterfall trips that require minimal hiking to get to and just enough ‘wow’ to have you snapping photo after photo.

Spotlight® Magazine | Late Summer 2017


Dogs: No Fee: The entry fee is $20 for a one day pass.

Helen Hunt Falls Bridal Veil Falls Dropping 365-feet from the Bridal Veil Basin in a box canyon in Telluride is Colorado’s tallest free-falling waterfall. Making it an even more impressive spectacle is the power plant atop the falls. The second oldest AC generation facility in the country, the power plant was built in 1907 to supply the Smuggler’s Union Mine. To the trailhead:  Drive east through Telluride on Colorado Ave. for a little over two miles past the Pandora Mill to a large unmarked parking area.  No hiking – just drive to the end of the box canyon and look up. Dogs: Yes, on leash

Near Colorado Springs along Cheyenne Canyon Rd., Helen Hunt Falls offers a truly sublime experience. Visitors can view the falls by taking just a short jaunt from the parking area and may opt to go above the waterfall via a short trek along a trail. An added bonus: Continuing about a quarter of a mile you will be treated to a second nearby waterfall called Silver Falls. Helen Hunt Jackson was a 19th-century poet and author who focused on the plight of the American Indians. To the trailhead: From I-25 take the Nevada Rd. exit on the south side of Colorado Springs. Take this to Cheyenne Blvd. in a few blocks. When you reach a fork in the road follow the sign to Helen Hunt Falls.  Dogs: Yes, on leash

Calypso Cascades Calypso Cascades, at just 1.8-miles from the trailhead along Rocky Mountain National Park’s eastern border, gushes enthusiastically. While these falls are a winter snowshoe destination treat, there’s nowhere else in Colorado that offers such a visual feast during the spring and summer.

continued on page 18

S

To the trailhead: Take US. 36 west to Boulder and continue through Lyons. Turn left on CO7 for 20 miles. From CO7, turn west at the Wild Basin sign and drive to the Copeland Lake area, about one mile. Follow the narrow road to the Wild Basin entrance station.

Remember though, because the falls are in RMNP, no dogs are allowed on the trail.

Rifle Falls State Park One of the most scenic (triple !) waterfalls in Colorado, Rifle Falls stands uniquely apart from any other falls in the state. Shrubs framing the trail and glorious limestone cliffs adorn the route throughout the canyon housing Rifle Falls. To the trailhead: Take Rifle exit 90 from I-70 north onto CO13. Three miles north of town, bear right onto CO325 all the way to the park. Obtain a park map and continue north through Rifle Falls State Park. Dogs: Yes, on leash Fee: $7/daily pass

Steamboat’s Fish Creek Falls Fish Creek Falls is an impressive 283-foot high waterfall near Steamboat Springs. The waterfall is minutes from downtown Steamboat Springs and reachable via a gravel path about 3/4-mile from the parking area to the falls. Acquired by the U.S. Forest Service in the early 1980s, the Fish Creek Falls area offers hiking, a picnic area and informational signs. To the trailhead: Once in Steamboat Springs, drive east on Lincoln Ave., then turn left on third St. At the next stop sign, take a right onto Fish Creek Falls Rd and drive about three miles to the parking area. Dogs: Yes, on leash Fee: $5 per vehicle per day


Lory State Park: Soldier Canyon Falls A quick drive north near Fort Collins yields an opportunity to view a series of waterfalls. Soldier Canyon Falls, sits just about 0.1mile into the trail along a canopy of ancient cottonwood trees. With more than 2,500 acres of prairie grassland and fragrant forests, and 20 miles of easy-to-moderate trails, Lory State Park beckons hikers, cyclists and horseback riders. To the trailhead: Â From I-25 take Harmony Rd/38E west. Turn right on CR23 and proceed north until the T-intersection. Take a left at the stop sign onto CR23. Continue north until Lodgepole Dr. and then take a left. Go 1.6-miles to the park entrance. Dogs: Yes, on leash Fee: $7/daily pass Late Summer 2017 | SpotlightÂŽ Magazine

FLAVORS Tasty Backyard Recipes

Have an original recipe you’d like to share with the community? Email us at editorial@loudmouthmedia.com!

By Family Features

Family, tasty food, and backyard fun are what summer is all about. This year, add some spark to backyard staples like grilled chicken and potato salad with a little help from tangy condiments, smoky rubs and your cast-iron skillet. Find more recipes and ideas at McCormick.com.

Grilled and Loaded Smashed Potatoes PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES • COOK TIME: 25 MINUTES • SERVINGS: 12

White Barbecue Sauce with Smoky Chicken PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES • COOK TIME: 45 MINUTES • SERVINGS: 6

White Barbecue Sauce: • • • •

1 1 /2 2 1

cup mayonnaise • cup cider vinegar tablespoons Zatarain’s Creole Mustard • • teaspoon prepared horseradish

1 /2 teaspoon McCormick Coarse Ground Black Pepper 1/2 teaspoon McCormick Garlic Powder 1/4 teaspoon salt

Smoky Chicken: • • •

1 cup hickory wood chips 2 pounds bone-in chicken parts 2 tablespoons McCormick Grill Mates Applewood Rub

1. To make sauce: In medium bowl, mix mayonnaise, vinegar, creole mustard, horseradish, black pepper, garlic and salt until well blended. Cover. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving to blend flavors. 2. To make chicken: Cover wood chips in water and soak 30 minutes. Season chicken with rub. Drain wood chips. Fill smoker box with wet wood chips. Place smoker box under grill rack on one side of grill before lighting. Close grill. 3. Prepare grill for indirect medium heat (350-375 F). Heat grill by turning all burners to medium. Once cooking temperature is reached, turn off burner(s) on one side. Place chicken on unlit side of grill. Close grill cover. 4. Grill, turning occasionally, 30-40 minutes, or until internal temperature of thickest part of chicken is 165 F. Move chicken to lit side of grill with skin side down. Turn lit side of grill to high. 5. Grill, uncovered, 3-5 minutes longer, or until chicken is charred. Serve chicken with White Barbecue Sauce. Test Kitchen Tip: Refrigerate any leftover sauce and use as salad dressing, condiment for burgers or dipping sauce for pretzels and vegetables. 24

1 1/2 pounds medium Yukon gold potatoes 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 5 teaspoons McCormick Grill Mates Bacon Chipotle Seasoning, divided 6 slices Applewood smoked bacon, cut into 1/4-inch pieces 1 cup chopped yellow onion 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onions 1/4 cup sour cream

1. Heat grill to medium. 2. Place potatoes on microwavable plate. Pierce potatoes with fork several times. Microwave on high 5-6 minutes, or until fork-tender but still firm. Let stand until cool enough to handle. In large bowl, toss potatoes, oil and 3 teaspoons seasoning until well coated. 3. Place potatoes on grill and cook, turning frequently, 4-5 minutes or until skin is crispy. In large cast-iron skillet on grill, cook and stir bacon 8-10 minutes, or until crisp. Add yellow onion and bell pepper; cook and stir 2-3 minutes, or until tender-crisp. 4. Push bacon mixture to one side of skillet. Add potatoes to other side of skillet. Smash each potato with heavy spatula, bottom of small sturdy bowl or meat pounder. Sprinkle potatoes with remaining seasoning. Spoon bacon mixture over potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese. 5. Cover pan or close grill. Cook 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. To serve, sprinkle with green onions and dollops of sour cream. Test Kitchen Tip: Cooking potatoes before grilling reduces overall grill time. Source: McCormick Spice
