Rifle is a small town on Interstate 70 about 180 miles west of Denver. Its highlight for me was a real grocery store. Green River had a very small grocery the Melon Vine that we had been relying on for the last month. Although we are staying in Silt, Rifle is only 7 miles away and has a full size grocery store City Market and a Walmart.
Besides the shopping, we had a wonderful day at Rifle Falls Co State Park. There was an entrance fee of $7.oo, but the falls were beautiful with a nice short hike around and behind the falls. There were also caves in the rock face on either side of the falls some with built-in benches. We imagined the caves would be very popular in the summer when it was hot outside.
Just a couple of miles above these falls were great cascading falls. The trail in the state park follows the river above the falls as an optional extension to the shorter hike. The cascading falls were in my opinion prettier than the taller falls, but I love all waterfalls!!
Peace and Love!!
