Desert Oasis and Waterfall, Utah

Perpetual waterfalls in the southwest deserts are extremely rare and sometimes spectacular. This photograph was made as high winds blew the falling water in various directions from the 126 foot (38m) high cliff. My camera and I both got wet, but it was well worthwhile.
