Calf Creek Falls

For Steve's birthday, he wanted to do something fun and active.  So, we went to Calf Creek Falls, down in the wonderful Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.  We took the whole crew down, including the Babcocks (well, really they met us there and had an awesome campsite waiting for us).

It was a fast trip, but fun.  It was Sage's first time in the backpack.  She really seemed to like it.  I liked the workout I got by carrying her, which was awesome, but still not as heavy as Steve's camera gear.  :)

The hike was nice.  Not too hot.  The huge canyon walls were beautiful to look at.  And, there were a number of people hiking, including lots of kids.  So cool to see people out hiking and enjoying nature, instead of cooped up at home in front of a screen (like me right now).

Favorite quote of the trip, given to us by our campsite neighbors.

"Can you keep your campfire smoke in your own campsite?"

ok, lots of photos of me.  it's because steve has the camera.  

This last photo was taken at a place called Devil's Garden.  It's about 10-12 miles down the Hole in the Rock Road.  Fun place to see cool sandstone formations and cute little girls named Sage.

Looks like a ton of fun! I love the last picture of Sage - Steve's a talented guy and she is adorable!
