A Waterfall Find!

Our new, somewhat temporary lodgings in Utah are close to the mountains!   Yay!  Yet I didn't realize just how close they were, until we went out the other evening and discovered a waterfall on a short trail up a canyon just 1 mile from our house.  That's right, we could set out our front door, and 20 minutes later, be sitting next to a crashing waterfall, with rocks to play on and shady trees.  I think it will be a great place to escape in the summer when it gets hot.

In my home state of Iowa, this would be a park...here it is just a short trail in a network of cool places.   The waterfall is probably only a quarter mile from the main road, yet there are places to sit and enjoy the crashing water, and another trail going who-knows-where higher up the mountain.  When my nephew got bored, he started climbing the rocks, and we ended up (via trail mostly) high above the waterfall looking down on everyone else.

A great little place to discover.  Let the exploring continue!
