Hike and Swim

Calf Creek Falls is a perennial waterfall in the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah that totals 214 feet (65 m). The lower tier is a 126-foot (38 m) cascade and is very popular, because it can be reached by an easy hike on a 5½ mile roundtrip trail. The upper tier is a 88-foot (27 m) plunge and is much less known, as it requires a 1-mile (1.6 km) scramble past the lower falls. Courtesy of Wikipedia
