essay bro:

 

To visit Falls Gulch Falls…. You gotta wanna see it really bad.  First of all the town of Winston is way out there passed no-mans land.  It’s maybe 50 miles northeast of Truth or Consequences on a very slow, narrow highway that is fully stocked with sharp curves… Then 24 miles of rumpy-bumpy dirt road plus a 3.5-mile hike.  My trip in here brought the “Beatles” last song to mind… It’s a long and winding road…. that leads to this falls.
