  • Title: The Desert Oasis
  • State/Province/Region (required): Utah
  • Country (required): United States
  • Nearest Town: Escalante
  • Description: Calf Creek Falls consists of a 6 mile round trip hike from the campground that you first drive into. If you travel here in the summertime like I did - it's blistering hot. The hike is filled with many interesting things to look at, but right from the beginning you start to get soaked in sweat. If you're wearing a backpack, it's even worse. Walking by the stream was only a tease of what was to come. Surrounded by sheer cliffs on either side of you, Calf Creek falls are one of the most spectacular places I've ever been. It's top notch in my book for the most breathtaking and welcoming scenes to the end of a hike. The water is very nice, and it is allowed to swim at the falls. It's cold, but when it's hot, it feels awesome. This is no small waterfall either, it's large, over 150+ feet I'd say. I spent over four hours at the falls just relaxing and taking pictures until I made the treck back to the campsite.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Gear: Canon EOS 5d Mark II, Canon 17-40 f/4L
