Utah Vacation, Day 7
Though we had planned on staying until Saturday night and then driving home, come Thursday everyone felt like they were ready to head back, so we did a little sight seeing, then packed up around 3 and hit the road for home. The vacation was fun. We definitely have plans to take some longer distance vacations, like this one was, once Number Three is old enough to be in the car for that long without major meltdowns or nursing spells. All the shots from this last day were taken with my phone since the battery had died on my camera, with the exception of a few actually on the road on the way home; we had Dad's camera then.
Because the falls are created from mountain streams fed by snow and ice melt, the water was frigid. That didn't keep all sorts of kids of all ages from playing in it, though.
