The side porch of the Bridal Veil Falls Power Plant is a perfect spot for spectacular views of the Telluride Valley.

The Idarado, Mill, AKA the Pandora Mill or simply the Gray Mill, is 1200 feet below the power plant.

The spring runoff has swelled Ingram Falls as it spills over the canon rim at the east end of Telluride Valley.  The falls are 280 feet high.

This 4-passenger all-terrain vehicle provides access to the power plant and the Blue Lake reservoir for operation and maintenance purposes.

The top of Bridal Veil Falls and the power plant are at an elevation of 10,279 feet.

 


(Left) The falls are the tallest in Colorado.  They drop 365 feet.

 

(Above)  The MHAers got pretty wet taking photographs at the base of the falls.  All agreed that it was worth the shower.
