among the Uintah mountian
s of Utah
is one of the most beautiful
places north of the Tropic of Cancer
. It is a natural spring
where ground water
seeps out of a large round
area that outlets runoff from a glacier
higher in the mountians.
The water runs down through a series
of rough cascades
(the upper cascades) into a group of larger limestone
cascades (the lower cascades) where the water calmly
flows down twoard a river at the bottom of the canyon
and it enters a sinkhole
along with both ends of the river.
There are fish
that live in the limestone cascades that are not found anywhere else in the area and may not be caught, so do not
bring fishing gear.
The area is excellent
, bring a polarizing filter
, a short lens
, a mid-length lens (200 or 300mm), and some color 100 speed film
. The upper cascades are beautiful, and cannot be described in words. The lower cascades are good for pictures
of fish, which contrast
well with the limestone cascades.
This would be a great
place to bring a girl
for a romantic
walk, on the paved
through the cascades area.
