On these three pages, you'll find an in-depth spread of pictures and a cool interactive satellite-photo track-map covering short but scenic hike in Lower Calf Creek Canyon. If you liked what you saw of Lower Calf Creek and Lower Calf Creek Falls in the main narrative, then spend a few minutes looking at all of the extra images contained here. Extra images of Lower Calf Creek Canyon and the Lower Falls that were not in the main narrative are indicated by a color surrounding the image thumbnail.

Please note: this page isn't part of the main trip report. If you are interested in the full narrative of our time in Lower Calf Creek Canyon, then you should go to this page in the main story narrative. Once you've finished with the narrative, you may then wish to come back to this section to look at all of the extra pictures (and the maps) of our Lower Calf Creek Canyon hike that I couldn't fit into the main narrative.
