Photographer's Note

I thought I show a different kind of water falls here, a desert waterfall, this one is a little ant in comparison to my previous post of the Iguacu Falls.

Lower Calf Creek Falls is a nice stroll to a brilliant desert waterfall. The trail is 3 miles one-way and will require approximately 1 1/2 hours to hike one-way. Bring a swimming suit or clothes you can swim in for an enjoyable plunge into the crystal clear waters at the base of the falls. The only difficulty is hot summer days. Photographers will want to visit the waterfall in the morning while it is in the sunlight.

Pick-up a trail guide at the trailhead register and participate in the informative self guided tour. The trail guide will help you spot two granaries that were constructed by Native Americans approximately 900 years ago, along with a nice panel of pictographs. The Fremont and Anasazi Indians once inhabited the canyon. Part of the trail go along the small creek but look in there you find many decent size fishes.

Next time your are in the Escalante, Utah it is worth a visit. I recommend to pack your lunch and get there before noon, in the summer it will be hot, but once you get there, you can take a swim, there are many large trees and shady area to settle down for cool and relaxing lunch.
