These falls are a gauzy strip of white hanging below ragged crags above The Loch. Timberline Falls was aptly named by Robert Sterling Yard, a journalist who wrote the first brochure to inform visitors about the newly established Rocky Mountain National Park. Yard was chief of the educational section of the National Park Service. The demarcation known as timberline wanders up and down at roughly 11,500 feet above sea level (varying according to exposure to wind and sun) in Rocky Mountain National Park.
