  Horsethief Falls
by Astrobuck

This is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Colorado. Even though it may look frozen in this picture, there was still water flowing when we went up to look at it. If you go, be sure to climb up to the top...the view is great!

To get there, follow CO-67 toward Cripple Creek. Once you get on a VERY winding road, look for an area with a closed railroad tunnel on the left. The parking lot for Horsethief Falls is located around the curve on the other side of the tunnel.
