A Hike to a Waterfall & Outside Cooking

Baking/cooking, places, Travel

This short trail to a waterfall was really pretty.  It was the only waterfall we have seen in Utah.  This is still in the Bryce Canyon area that we spent 5 days in.  I’m sure a lot of you have tired of travel photos and I have done very little sewing.  Thank you to all of you that have stuck with me!   As I write this post and the last 4 (I think) we are now on October 9th and spending two nights in Page, Arizona then on to Flagstaff area and heading homeward direction from there.  We should be home around the 18th then I will get back into my routine quickly I’m sure, sitting at the quilting frame in the evening and sewing daytimes.

The water started like this and then as you hike your way in the little river gets bigger.

The water flows from May to October I believe the sign had said – it was a beautiful short trail.

A plus is that it isn’t mentioned but as you get to the waterfall you see beautiful rock with the “windows” in them.

This one reminded me of a Texas map backwards!

This one is more of an arch than a window.

That evening it was nice out and I got the Dutch oven out to cook – made a small meat loaf and roasted some potatoes with them.  I crumpled up some aluminum foil to put under the meatloaf so the grease would drain and the meal wouldn’t just sit in it.

It took about an hour – the charcoal was burning itself out by then.

Here is some after we got busy helping ourselves to it!  It turned out good and we had very little left over!  I will be trying out a cake sometime this last week on the way home – wonder how it will turn out!  well let you all know.

    I did not know about a waterfall at Bryce. Wish we had walked that trail. Love your travel photos and am amazed at how you cook such a great looking dinner with that Dutch Oven. You have really mastered that equipment.

    I love waterfalls … and what a nice added bonus of the rock formations. That meatloaf sure looks good … maybe we’ll have to have meatloaf for dinner tonight. Of course, mine will be cooked in the oven, ha!

    Are you travelling back on the same route or dipping down into Texas by any chance?

    Love the Window rocks.. those are very cool.. and your meatloaf and taters looks sumptuous… thanks for sharing all that.. love your aluminum foil under it all to keep the grease away too!
    Are you missing your home routine or enjoying the break still? Guess today you are heading back home already… what a lovely vacation you have had though 🙂

    That first window-rock looks as if it could tumble down at any moment ! 🙂 Lovely scenic shots and no we’re not tired of your travel photos! 🙂

    I have also gone along with you on your trip. I have enjoyed it and will never tire of the beautiful scenic travel photos. Keep them coming — even on your way back.

    I haven’t been to Bryce Canyon since I was a teenager! I would love to go back some day. You really sound like it’s been a great trip! So happy you could have these good times.:)

    The rock formations amaze me. Mother Nature is quite the artist.

    I have enjoyed traveling with you and seeing the amazing areas you have visited. The rock formations must be beautiful to see in person as your photos are so clear. I’m glad you’ve had this time away, winter will be here before long, plenty of time to get back to sewing.

    My husband doesn’t want to travel so I don’t get to see the country other than through TV or other people’s travel so your pictures and comments on your travels are very much appreciated by me and I want to thank you for sharing even with iffy wifi
    And the water is so lovely I remember water I hope we get some this rainy season
