Calf Creek Falls, Saving Lives

Calf Creek FallsIt’s been a few weeks since I did my Sweat for Clean Water charity fund raiser. I never really said much about it, so today is that day.

After weeks of preparation,  the event took place June 29th. With help from my wife  we came up with the cool logo for the shirt design.

We met in the parking lot in the morning. There was nine of us total, my wife and I, a coworker, two friends from up north and the guys from trails360.com, a grand total of nine. Not a bad turn out for a web site that is owned and operated by 1 person.

So we headed out on what turned out to be one of the hottest weekends of the month and on record. Almost everywhere was over 100 degree’s including Escalante Utah. Oddly enough this makes hiking to calf creek somewhat more enjoyable. When the summer sun gets hot, that water feels so much 101_4926refreshing. This biggest issue is leaving it once you’re done.

The hike went well, but the guys from trails360 had to turn around. They had little little kids and the heat was too dangerous for them, so they made the right decision and turned around. In the end five made it to the waterfall.

Over all though through this fund raiser we raised over 200 dollars! We even had the chance to speak to some people about it along the way. It helps when your group are all wearing the same shirt, making you stand out like a sore thumb.

So here are some pictures of the event,

For those who did not get a chance to come, I am considering doing a second fund raiser here in the beginning of September and going to Kannaraville Falls. Let me know if anyone is interested.
