Photographs by Nancy Conly Miscia

Handsome book celebrates the dramatic waterfalls of Colorado’s uncrowded Western Slope, in particular the Colorado River Basin. Conly presents a seven-point summary for each of the 50 falls described and pictured in the book, including GPS location, access info, trail miles with elevation gain/loss, elevation, and wheelchair accessibility. Writing for visitors and armchair explorers alike, Conly organizes the falls in relation to each other. Waterfall geology and hints about safely viewing these scenic wonders are included.
