Utah has a variety of scenery in its vast and rugged expanse of desert wilderness. We've managed to find slot canyons, natural arches, desert oases, and even canyons with vertical sandstone cliffs. Amidst this scenery are waterfalls that are tall and graceful as well as hidden and mysterious. Like the Grand Canyon in Northern Arizona, many of the waterfalls found in this unforgiving landscape resulting from springs while others are of the ephemeral variety. Still, there are other waterfalls that pose as not only scenic assets but obstacles during slot canyon adventures. Further to the north, there are mountain ranges that supply its waterfalls with melting snow. In fact, snow is abundant enough in these areas that they hosted the Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City in 2002.

Perhaps the most dramatic of the waterfalls in the deserts and canyons of the southern part of the state is Lower Calf Creek Falls. We have yet to visit any waterfalls in the northern part of the state, which Julie and I are real keen on doing.

In any case, ever since we first saw the alluring beauty of Utah in 2001, we have made a few repeated trips since and will continue to do so.
