Replenishing the arid canyon of the Lincoln National Forest with its striking presence, the Sitting Bull Falls covers a height of 150 meters into the canyon and disappears just as quickly into the underground water system through cracks and crevices.

The falls belong to the Capitan Great Barrier Reef that dates back to the Permian period which was surrounded by sea on all sides about 250 million years ago!  Today, the dry desert climate even though quiet tricky to climb, is still worth the visit to see the gorgeous view all around.
