essay bro:


Brazos falls is the highest waterfall in New Mexico.  Brazos Falls Creek, a tributary to the Brazos River, descends an amazing 2400 feet in its short 2-mile length.  1300 feet of this is near vertical.  “It’sa thousand foot falls,” say the locals… and I more than agree.  The top 800’ here are beautiful hanging falls.  These can be seen in the photograph (above – left).  With envy I have watched the rock-climbers… what wonderful views of the falls they must receive for their efforts… smile… 


I recommend a multi-day vacation at Corkin’s Lodge, as resorting here you will enjoy the beauty, accompanied with a peace – of – mind that trespassing can never afford.
