Deer Creek Falls - Grand Canyon

"August 23, 1869. Just after dinner we pass a stream on the right, which leaps into the Colorado by a direct fall of more than 100 feet, forming a beautiful cascade. On the rocks in the cavelike chamber are ferns, with delicate fronds and enameled stalks." John Wesley Powell

 

Deer Creek is a very popular destination. We stopped here to hike up the cliff to the "Patio".

 

I rafted with Arizona Raft Adventures AZRA.
