Riverwalker’s Pics - Agnes Vaille Falls

The trail to Agnes Vaille Falls is located in Chalk Creek canyon near Nathrop, Colorado. At the end of the trail you will find Agnes Vaille Falls, a small waterfall that cascades from a rocky shelf below Mt. Princeton (14,197 feet). The trail to the falls is fairly short and is considered a relatively easy trek for most hikers. There is a slight gain in elevation of about 450 feet from the start of the trail head.  Overall this is an easy hike until the end where there are some rocky and fairly steep sections.

Agnes Vaille was a member of the Rocky Mountain Club and had successfully climbed most of the peaks in excess of 14,000 feet but lost her life on the mountains she loved.

That is very pretty. Being from Texas, strange seeing water run off like that, lol.

Its been years since I visited Colorado, that the Four Corners region, visiting Durango (Narrow Gauge Train Ride is very cool!) and Mesa Verde Park.
