Ghost Falls

I recently went on a pretty easy hike to Ghost Falls. It's located in the Draper mountains. One of the trailheads is found just south of the LDS Draper Temple. It was a great, quick hike. It only took about one and a half hours to hike (round trip). It's very beautiful and gives a great view of the Draper valley. In hiking this trail on foot, my family and I were constantly dodging the people on bikes. It wasn't that bad though. There are a few steep parts to the trail and there are many twists and turns. The waterfall in the end is a beautiful sight. Here are some pictures.

Here is the beautiful, blue sky that is clearly visible from the trailhead.
 It's kind of hard to see right here, but there is a perfectly formed spider-web in this picture.

 Here is a weird thing that we noticed as we came down the trail. In the middle of the trees (with no road leading up to it) we saw this bathtub. A little further down the trail we saw an old, over-turned truck.

A very cool looking tree.
I enjoyed this hike, and I'd recommend as a nice, easy hike for the other extreme adventurers out there.
