“Two Tickets to my Driving Record” (Southern Utah – May 23, 2003 to May 25, 2003)

As we entered the township of Hatch, the speed limit was reduced to 35mph so I lazily let the car roll to the required slower speed from the 75mph we had gone, but apparently it wasn’t slowing down…

Southern Yosemite Initiation Itinerary – May 9, 2003 to May 11, 2003

In this itinerary, we did a weekend camping trip where the focus of this visit was to explore the quiet southern section of Yosemite National Park, particularly in the Wawona area…

Staircase Falls

Staircase Falls is one of two named ephemeral waterfalls (the other being Horsetail Falls). It got its name from the way its creek steps down a series of granite ledges…

Royal Arch Cascade

Tumbling near the Ahwahnee Hotel lies the stringy Royal Arch Cascades. Distracted by the Royal Arches, the Washington Column, and North Dome, visitors often fail to notice this streaking waterfall…

Silver Strand Falls

Silver Strand Falls is perhaps the most overlooked waterfall due to its unfortunate position at the famous Tunnel View Overlook…

Chilnualna Falls

Chilnualna Falls was one of those waterfall experiences that surpassed whatever expectations we may have had going into the hike. Given how little attention the southern section of Yosemite…

Zion Hiking Weekend Itinerary – April 25, 2003 to April 27, 2003

This extended weekend trip marked the third time that Julie and I had been to Zion National Park. So we were now becoming quite familiar with what attractions were here. And given our familiarity with this place, we also camped for both the nights of this weekend…

Pine Creek Falls

Pine Creek Falls is a pleasant little waterfall downstream from its technical slot canyon. You can find this pleasant 30ft waterfall after a short scramble that begins…

Archangel Cascades

The Archangel Cascades are a series of cascades sheeting their way down the hard sandstone bedrock as the Left Fork North Creek continued its way further downstream. Like other similar pages in the Utah region, the waterfalls here were really my excuse at sharing the more epic adventure most people would come here for. In […]

“Tubing in the Subway” (Zion Subway and Zion Canyon – April 25, 2003 to April 27, 2003)

As Julie and I made our way up the slippery wet hardened sandstone floor, we were immediately met by a series of deep pools that conspired to turn us around…

Bryce Canyon Weekend Itinerary – April 10, 2003 to April 12, 2003

This trip was intended to share with the parents the wonderful experiences that Julie and I (along with a couple of friends) had just a couple of years prior when we did a Grand Circle trip. But since we had to fit this into a weekend, this exposure could only come in increments…

“Hoodoo Voodoo” (Bryce Canyon – April 11, 2003 to April 12, 2003)

What we didn’t expect was that the hoodoos made some pretty interesting formations like the one that resembled Scooby-Doo, the cartoon character dog…

Big Sur Errands Itinerary – March 28, 2003 to March 30, 2003

I called this trip our Big Sur Errands trip because we used a weekend to scout out possible wedding venues. Of course, since we were already up here, we also took advantage of being able to go waterfalling in between these venue visits…

Limekiln Falls

Limekiln Falls was a pretty neat diversion along the rugged Big Sur coast. Sitting in the Limekiln State Park, we thought it was perhaps the most compelling attraction in the reserve, which…

Canyon Falls

Canyon Falls was the unfortunate overshadowed neighbor to the gorgeous McWay Falls as they share the Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. That said, its “unfortunate” location may also be fortunate if…

Cooper Canyon Falls

Cooper Canyon Falls was a waterfall that was quite close to the LA Basin as the crow flies, but it was actually one of the more distant ones we’ve visited. Getting there involved a fairly long drive

Zion Rainy Weekend Itinerary – March 14, 2003 to March 16, 2003

With our waterfalling passion in full swing, I had this idea to try to time a visit to Zion National Park (and its harsh desert environment) in the hopes of seeing waterfalls. What transpired was this short weekend trip where we managed to see waterfalls under a rain storm…

“Spring Rain” (Zion National Park – March 15, 2003 to March 16, 2003)

It turned out that we happened to show up just in time for a parade that was going through the main road in Virgin. We might have missed most of the parade, but the long queue of waiting motorists…

Switzer Falls

Switzer Falls was one waterfall that kind of became an exercise in frustration when it came to satisfactory experiences. You see, we’ve typically seen this waterfall in low flow…

Trail Canyon Falls

Trail Canyon Falls is probably the prettiest local waterfall I’ve seen. However, even for a local waterfall, it takes a little work to see this little beauty…
