Waterfall Lovers Need to See Horseshoe Falls in Rocky Mountain National Park
If you love waterfalls, there is an awesome Colorado waterfall in Rocky Mountain National Park that you've got to see called Horseshoe Falls.
On July 15, 1982, the Lawn Lake Flood killed three people and caused $31 million in damage to Estes Park. The flood was caused when Lawn Lake's earthen dam failed, and as the sign at the base of the falls reads, "releasing 29 millions gallons of water. As the flood rushed downhill four miles to this point, the surging waters picked up boulders and snapped trees." The force was tremendous!
Still today, you can see the remnants and the affect of the flood on the landscape, but at the same time, you can witness a marvelous series of waterfalls that cascade down the mountain to the valley below.
You will find Horseshoe Falls just inside the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park up Old Fall River Road. Viewing the falls requires a very brief hike - and then it's up to you how high you go. If you love waterfalls, put this one on your list.
