Virgin River Falls Park, Utah

After walking around the west rim of the Virgin River Tom and Terry had one more brief stop in mind on the way to our canyon hike. Located just off the road that leads to the trail head is Virgin Falls Park, a small-ish picnic/swimming/recreation park that’s incredibly scenic. This stretch of the Virgin River is a few miles upstream of the dam pictured in my last post, before is enters the deep canyon. I ran around here for a half hour or so taking pictures of the sandstone and the mesa, delighted (and grinning like a crazy person) by the beauty concentrated in such a small area.
