Tallest Waterfalls in CO?
Was wondering about coming up with a nice list of some of the tallest waterfalls in state that occur on boatable streams. Obviously there are numerous giant waterfalls on creeks that are far too small to boat, but there are plenty of big drops both runnable and non on streams that do get boated. Flows are low and instead of the customary off-season flaming I thought let's do something more fun and friendly.
Some of the ones just of the top of my head. Please correct any heights/names that you see fit!
