Star Falls

The photo above was found in an old photos archive.  This photo was obviously taken before President Nixon gave Blue Lake back to Taos Pueblo in December of 1970




This photo shows some of the high peaks of the Toas Pueblo land… The headwaters of Taos Pueblo Creek as seen from Eagle Nest Lake.


Star Falls is located within sacred Taos Pueblo Land and it is not open to the public.  The photo above is taken from Eagle Nest Lake.  Star Falls is about 300 feet high.  From the photo above I would guess it to be closer to 400 feet high.  The sheer cliffs rise to near 1000’ on each side of Star Falls.   This is an amazing place.
