Watery Wednesday: Virgin River Gorge

Cascades on the Virgin River, Virgin River Gorge, Arizona. June 18, 2011.

This is my post for Watery Wednesday.  To see more of our beautiful watery world, or to join and post your own pictures to share, click HERE.

As you know, it is very difficult for Betsy and me to travel without attempting to get close to a waterfall or at least some fast flowing water.

We had such a chance when we traveled through the Virgin River Gorge, located between St. George, Utah, and Littlefield, Arizona.  The gorge is a long canyon that has been carved out by the Virgin River in northwest Arizona.  It connects he southwestern rim of the Colorado Plateau and the northeastern edge of the Mojave Desert.

Interstate 15 runs through the canyon, and we got this picture of the cascade at a pullout.

    THe water looks very muddy,or is that just because of the color of the surrounding rocks and soil?

    Looks like it just rained and made the water muddy or is that just the color.

    That water looks muddy like there has been a recent rain….I bet Lo would still have a good time there.

    An interesting picture. I never would have known what it was!

  8. Karin Says:

    I’m going to say the same as the others – the water looks muddy and churned up! Looks shallow enough to play in though! Looks a very interesting spot to hang out for a while!

    It is amazing to see water in a desert. Lots of red colours there.

    WOW. I would have never guessed that to be water! LOL That is so neat that you all found this….certainly far different than any waterfall or fast flowing water you have shared with us before!
    Seeing all of yours & Betsy’s pics of this trip is just sooo sweet to see how the Lord blessed you and led you to all things that you all love!! HE is sooo amazing that way isn’t HE!
