Zapata Falls

Near the Great Sand Dunes is an impressive waterfall in the crevice of a rock. It's about a half mile round trip to see the falls, and some wading depending on the season.

From outside the crevice you can't see the falls. The entrance looks pretty cool though. The creek was frozen in Mid-April when we visited, so rather than wading, we walked across the ice and into the crack.
There slot is about 50 yards deep or so and is quite a bit cooler than the outside air. You turn a corner and the falls are there. It is difficult to get a picture that sufficiently captures the feeling and a view of the falls. The falls were half frozen and looked pretty impressive.
