Colorado Waterfalls were amongst the last waterfalls that we had a chance to visit that were within the American Southwest region. We always knew big waterfalls and cascades were resident in this area since the state of Colorado was pretty much synonymous with the Rocky Mountains. Indeed, like the Eastern Sierra mountains in California, the famous Rocky Mountains defining pretty much define the "Continental Divide" from Canada all the way south to New Mexico though this mountain range really dominates the state of Colorado. And with its tall 14,000 peaks, it's not surprising to see that indeed plenty of waterfalls could be found here. So we're really looking forward to visiting the state's best waterfalls in the near future, but so far we only have a humble sampling of waterfalls based in the Colorado Springs / Pike's Peak area, where we took advantage of a business trip. In any case, we'll be sure to add more of the falls to this page as we have a chance to visit them in the near future.

So in the mean time, have a look at what we were able to see and experience so far. Perhaps even just this humble sampling may inspire you to experience that Rocky Mountain high that allure Nature lovers like it has for us.
