Bridal Veil Falls

Bridal Veil Falls was easily the most impressive and scenic waterfall that we managed to visit in the Salt Lake City vicinity. Its spring-fed year-round flow coming out of Cascade Mountain…

Horsetail Falls

Horsetail Falls was a another one of the waterfalls in the Salt Lake City vicinity that I really had to earn while going on a bit of an adventure. It involved going up a relentlessly uphill trail…

Adams Falls

Adams Falls (also known as Adams Canyon Falls) was definitely one of the more adventurous waterfalls that I pursued while waterfalling the Salt Lake City area during our Memorial Day Weekend…

Lisa Falls

Lisa Falls was one of the shorter waterfall excursions that I did while touring the Salt Lake City area on Memorial Day Weekend in 2017. As you can see from the photo above, it appeared to have…

Donut Falls

Donut Falls (I’ve also seen it spelled Doughnut Falls) was so named because the Mill D South Fork Creek spilled into a pothole that someone imagined was shaped like a donut. Beneath the donut was…

Rocky Mouth Falls

Rocky Mouth Falls was a strangely situated waterfall in that its access involved walking amongst some pretty exclusive homes in the suburb of Sandy, which pretty much sat in the foothills…

Cascade Falls

Cascade Falls was our excuse to break up the very long drive from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City. While you don’t need to make such a long drive to reach this waterfall, it was conveniently within…

“Elevate Us” (Salt Lake City – May 25, 2017 to May 29, 2017)

By about 2:20pm, we only made it to Jean, which was the next town on the way to State Line. And it wouldn’t be until about 3:20pm when we finally made it to Primm. By this time, lots of people…

“Ladybugs of the Heart” (Heart Rock Falls – May 20, 2017)

I eventually scrambled up to rejoin Julie and Tahia where they were snacking on broccoli chips. As we were snacking up here, we were suddenly inundated in an insect swarm. It was quite a surreal…

Four Corners States Spring Break Loop Itinerary – April 13, 2017 to April 23, 2017

This was a trip where we tested the limits of our personal car as well as the limits of how much I could drive in a span of a week-and-a-half. We’ve always wanted to go to New Mexico and Colorado, and this was our opportunity…

Mary Jane Falls

Mary Jane Falls had to have been hands down the most popular hike in the Mt Charleston area. I had to have counted dozens of large hiking groups when I was making my way back down from the falls…

Little Falls

Little Falls was almost the waterfall that got away when I attempted to visit it right after doing the Mary Jane Falls hike. The problem was that the trail to access this waterfall wasn’t terribly…

“Medium Falls”

“Medium Falls” was a name I made up for this waterfall because it sat in between Little Falls and Big Falls on the northeast-facing slopes of Kyle Canyon. I could have easily called it “Lost Falls”…

Mill Creek Falls (“Left Hand”)

Mill Creek Falls was an unexpected natural waterfall surprise that I hadn’t planned on visiting when we made a return trip to Moab 16 years after our first visit. Waterfalls weren’t even on our…

Faux Falls

Faux Falls was another one of the waterfalling surprises during our return trip to Moab, Utah in 2017. Like the name suggests the waterfall was technically not real (“faux” is French for something…

Rifle Falls

Rifle Falls was an impressive three-segmented waterfall where each drop plunged some 70ft over travertine formations. While we’ve seen other three-segmented waterfalls like Triple Falls in Oregon…

Bridal Veil Falls and Spouting Rock

Few waterfalls could take your breath away, but the Bridal Veil Falls at Hanging Lake pretty much did just that – both literally and figuratively. The picture you see at the top of this page only…

Cascade Falls (Lower Cascade Falls)

Cascade Falls was said to be the last in a series of seven waterfalls on Cascade Creek near the town of Ouray (though only two of these waterfalls that I know of were said to be accessible and named).

North Clear Creek Falls

North Clear Creek Falls was a waterfall that I wound up going a bit out of the way for even though it was said to be a pretty easy-to-visit drive-to waterfall. Indeed, as you can see from the photo…

Cornet Falls

Cornet Falls was perhaps the waterfall that stole the show when it came to waterfalling the Telluride area. As you can see from the photo above, this 80ft waterfall had a lot going for it – the red…
