I was going to hike up a canyon across the road from my house called Calf

Pasture Hollow, but did not make it very far. The video above shows the East Fork of the Virgin River flowing over a check dam all muddy from rain up north. I crossed the river above the falls and went to the mouth of Calf Pasture Hollow to find it too flooded also to hike along its bansk.

So I just took these other shots across from my house here in Orderville Utah

good shots, Gary. The video was cool, but I think you tube cut it off. I love the sound of a waterfall and flowing rapids.
