Okay, so, we wouldn’t be fooling anybody if we said Colorado was boring in any way. Colorado is, in fact, easily one of the most stunningly beautiful (and incredibly diverse) states in the entire country, and we couldn’t be prouder to call it home (and for some of us, it’s home only in our hearts, but home nonetheless). Folks seem to gravitate to the same areas, like Rocky Mountain National Park, Breckenridge, or Denver – and we can see why! They’re all beautiful! But, today, we’d like to talk about Rifle Falls State Park; it’s small, stunning, and often overlooked by tourists. Here’s why it should be number one on everyone’s list, especially if you’ve never been:

At the time of this writing, the park is open from 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., though you will want to check the website for the most up-to-date hours, closures, or other important information. Need more amazing Colorado? How about this collection of even more amazing waterfalls?
