March 2017 Update
If you found this photo because you read that Forrest Fenn's treasure was buried beneath the rocks at this waterfall, then please know that I have no idea what that person is talking about and I certainly have not found any treasure. Good hunting! Wahatoya Creek Waterfall35 mm, 2.5 sec, f/7.1, ISO 100 The Wahatoya Trail is our favorite place to hike in the Cuchara/La Veta area. The trail starts at the end of the Wahatoya Camps, aka "Little Kansas," and follows Wahatoya Creek up the valley between the Spanish Peaks. Legend has it that the Utes considered this area to be the Garden of Eden, and it is easy to believe that this trail will lead you there. This small waterfall is found only a short distance from the trailhead, but there are many more wonderful spots all along the trail. I'll share some more photos along the trail in a future blog post.
