60’ Upper South Casa Falls – Pecos Wilderness


Above is a hundred foot high section of 250’ high Cascade Falls – Pecos Wilderness



The deep sheer-walled gorge below Resumidero Falls is peaceful and quite secluded.

A forest service sign along forest road 93 in the northern Jemez Mountains identifies this falls.



About a mile below Resumidero Falls is 50-foot high Echo Falls.  Her brother Box Falls in the far upper left-hand corner above, is half her height.

Leaping over Echo Falls is the last thing Rito Resumidero does before it conflues with the Rio Puerco.



My daughter takes a breather before we climb out of Lichen Falls secret sheer-walled chamber.

This 60-foot high waterfall is on the Rio Puerco about a quarter of a mile upstream from Echo Falls.



50’ Battleship Falls of the southern Jemez Mountains is Amazing.



Falls #4 of Clear Creek in Cimarron Canyon State Park is a 35‘ high beauty



30’ high Maverick Falls is in Cimarron Canyon State Park



Beautiful White Creek Falls is 22 miles deep into the Gila Wilderness.  The black bedrock turns red at the bottom… nice.
