Colorado Waterfalls were mostly nestled amongst the majestic Rocky Mountains where numerous peaks topped 14,000ft. While it wasn’t surprising to find waterfalls in this state, for one reason or another, they were among the last waterfalls that we had a chance to visit when it came to exploring them within the American Southwest states of Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and New Mexico.
Nevertheless, we finally did have our opportunities to explore the Rocky Mountain state and its waterfalls, and that was when the Colorado’s mountainous scenery grew on us with each passing day that we’d spend enjoying the outdoors. Indeed, like the Eastern Sierra mountains in California (forming the spine of that state), the famous Rocky Mountains defined pretty much the “Continental Divide” from Canada all the way south to New Mexico though this mountain range really dominated the state of Colorado.
And with its snow-capped peaks, it’s not surprising to see that indeed plenty of waterfalls could be found here. So far, as you can see from the waterfall map above, we’ve seen a handful of the state’s best waterfalls. However, we’re always keen to visit more of them as more opportunities may arise.
So have a look at our waterfall writeups from the Rocky Mountain state (which contain detailed descriptions, directions, maps, photographs, videos, nearby attractions to the waterfall of interest, and more. See if even just this humble sampling may inspire you to experience that Rocky Mountain high that attract Nature lovers like us.
