Today was a 5.84 mile hike to Calf Creek Falls. Although relatively flat, the trail crosses many sand tracks making the hiking somewhat difficult. It was a hike of contrasts, starting very dry and hot, the trail eventually leads to the waterfall and a virtual oasis in the middle of the desert. As usual in Utah, many unique rock formations could be seen along the hike. The waterfall is 130 feet high and provides a cool respite after a long hike. Including my time at the falls, it took slightly over 4 hours. It was worth the trip. Next stop Capital Reef National Park.
