Last year we made the trip to Fossil Creek/Fossil Springs in a camping adventure that I wasn't too keen on repeating. There was a death-defying drive to the spot which was hot, dry, and deserty (no pine trees) and to top it all off, fires were unallowed.
The creek and the swimming, diving, and rope-swinging were awesome though.
This week, Dan and Sean went back with some of Dan's work friends just for a day trip. They took a back road in which seemed to be slightly less terrifying as they tell it, and the 1 1/2 mile hike to the falls was an easy one.
Totally worth it for this:
The waterfall had its share of visitors that day, and to hear them tell it, that launch off the cliff was pretty scary, but they had a really great time.
Gotta love the hidden treasures in Arizona. :)
