June 2011 - 36 photos

On June 15, 2011, I went for another hike with my friends, Bill, Don, Judy and Larry. We went down to East Layton and hiked up Adam's Canyon along the North Fork of Holmes Creek. There are a couple of good waterfalls along that stream, and many rapids and smaller falls. The hike isn't very long, only about 1.7 miles according to the map, and climbs 1,345 feet. In some places you really do have to climb too. About like climbing a ladder. Also in places you have to walk in water... really cold water.

It was a great day for hiking, and for pictures, except for the sun being in front of us, and reflecting off of our camera lens. It ruined a few of my pictures, but I still got many good ones. Too many to show you all of them. I know that Bill and Judy took a lot too.

Upper falls in Adam's Canyon

I had heard that there were some lower falls that could be seen before entering into the main canyon, and wanted to find them this time. I have been to the upper falls three times, but never had seen the lower falls. This time I knew where to look and we found them. After climbing the canyon to the upper falls, we came back down and Bill and I went around on the south side of the lower falls to get pictures with the sun behind us. They turned out a bit better. Our total hike was 3.8 miles. This short little hike took us 5½ hours, but we really enjoyed it and took many hundreds of photos.
