Hidden Falls

July 28, 2015

Thank goodness for hiking club; we’re getting to know all kinds of new places we haven’t explored before.  Two weeks ago we met up with three other families and hiked to Hidden Falls in Big Cottonwood Canyon, though it wasn’t much of a hike.  It’s just a few hundred feet off the road–the canyon road in the middle of a curve that you must park on one side of and cross to the other safely with all small children in tow.

Beautiful scenery, scary road crossing–

Whew!  We made it!

Though short, this was actually a hard hike.  The trail just ends and if you want to get to the waterfall, you have to go through the water, while holding an 18-month-old!  Little A did not want to get down in the water this day.  She wanted to be held and it was tough going on the slippery rocks.

The spray from the falls felt good though, once we made it.

Now Little A wants to play, now that it’s time to go home!

We have hiking club again this Wednesday, but almost everybody here has head colds and/or allergies, so we’ll see.

    Whoa. That mine tunnel is intense!! That sounds seriously unpleasant. But the falls, they look absolutely lovely. I’m just a little jealous of your hiking club. And your canyons. All of the “local” falls are hours from our home. Thanks for posting pictures!
