During my first visit to Escalante in October, I was shocked to find waterfalls, icy rivers, endless miles of slick rock, isolated camping, and some of the craziest canyons I’ve ever traveled through. In three days, I crammed in as many highlights as I could, and I still feel like I only scraped the surface.
This was by far one of my favorite places in Utah. Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument is underrated and absolutely stunning. This waterfall behind me is called Lower Calf Creek falls, takes a small hike to get here but it’s worth every step.
