Helen Hunt Falls ~ Colorado Springs

We had just had a great hike at Garden of the Gods and more time to come here. The mountain drive was fantastic!

Helen Hunt Falls is located on Cheyenne Creek in the North Cheyenne Cañon Park of Colorado Springs, Colorado. The falls are named in honor of Helen Maria Hunt Jackson (October 15, 1830 – August 12, 1885), a United States poet and writer who became an activist on behalf of improved treatment of Native Americans by the U.S. government. She died in San Francisco, California in 1885 and was later buried in Colorado Springs.
