Almost half way into the Narrows hike, the Virgin River takes a vertical plunge. Luckily, there is a trail around the falls or this would have been one tretcherous descent without technical equipment. A mile or so downstream, the Virgin River will meet up with Deep Creek, trippling the flow and substantially decreasing the water's temperature for the second half of the trip.

Layers of red sandstone rock are exposed showing off natural artwork in patterns formed by the deposition and erosion of the rock.
