Fort Stanton Falls
The Rio Bonito flowing over the 12’ high lower tier of Fort Stanton Falls, in this photo, is running chocolate after a heavy summer rain. Resent forest fire are causing a lot of erosion since 2012. A 4’-high, upper tier is unseen in these photos.
A small but beautiful sheer-wall canyon runs out below the falls.
