Zapata Falls (Summertime)

Mouth of falls
We really enjoyed Zapata Falls. Absolutely amazing.
We actually climbed into the falls themselves and stood under the cold falls. Absolutely breathtaking (quite literally) but well worth it. This experience and memory will be everlasting from a wonderful weekend at the Great Sand Dunes National Park. WE will definitely visit the falls again in the future. Thanks for such a wonderful site. We love to hike and use this site quite often..
One more thing. If you plan on camping at the Dunes please make the effort to visit the "crazy lady", (just kidding, she was really nice) at the Alien Watchtower.
And a visit to the Colorado Gator Farm is a must.
Both sites are about 30-40 mins. from the
Dunes National Park. All sites are internet accessible for the necessary info.
