Encino Falls

Highest waterfall in the Manzano Mountains

200 high Encino Falls is in the northwest portion of the Manzano Mountains. The dark lines down the white face of the granite show the wet flowing of perennial spring waters. Would it be nice to see this amazing waterfall flowing full during a wet spring from a heavy snow pack...!!!

AND...Climbers...just look at those fabulous rock faces...!!!
