Chasing Waterfalls

When I made plans to go to Salt Lake City for my brother’s graduation, I instantly made plans to do a hike to Fifth Water Hot Springs. We went last year after his wedding and it was such an incredible place I had to return, especially after I found out there is a hole in the rocks in the waterfall you can stick your head through!

My cousin Travis started to cross this log but got scared. So I had to do it to look tough! Ha ha ha!

My cousin grabbed a snake on the hike down, he’s in vet school and very into animals. I decided to be brave and try holding the snake.

It was a wonderful day! I highly recommend this hike to anyone in the SLC/Provo area. It’s not hard with very little elevation gain so children and seniors can handle it.

A gorgeous hike!
