Chasing the Totality

Day Three: Escalante and Calf Creek Falls

Just a few miles down route 12 we plunged into the colorful Escalante River Valley. Our map showed a trail from the valley floor to Escalante Natural Bridge. Let's go!

A few more miles down the road we found ourselves at the trailhead for Calf Creek Falls. We hiked to the falls 12 years ago, on a bitterly cold winter day. A rainstorm was brewing but we decided to take our chances.
