16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Mossy Cave Trail Cascade Wide Angle

An added bonus that I discovered during my research, was this waterfall located in the northern end of Bryce Canyon N.P. This trail is a pleasant one that is mostly flat 3/4's of the way and is less frequented. It was restored in the summer of 2000 after having been closed for a long time, due to partial destruction by a flash flood. It follows a perennial creek meandering among a spectacular landscape of red spires, before reaching a deep alcove with green vegetation. A couple hundred yards before the alcove, a spur trail leads to the right to this beautiful cascade. As I am from New York, I am used to seeing many waterfalls surrounded by a different landscape, not better, just different. This was quite an unique treat for my friend and I.
