Calf Creek Falls
In southern Utah there is a wide area called the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. Within that area you will find a place called the Calf Creek Recreation Area. You can camp there right next to a cool, gurgling creek. But, the real adventure begins when you take the 5 1/2 mile round-trip hike to see the Calf Creek Falls. I will admit that about half way there you might be wondering if the hike will be worth it but, when the trail opens up to this wonderful oasis, you know it's been well worth the long walk.
I haven't been to this place in many, many years. I'd love to go back and get some new digital photos. For today, I had to make do with this twenty year old, scanned photo.
