Deer Creek Falls Flowing Life
Just a few hundred feet up stream of this tributary that drains into the Colorado River of the Grand Canyon is Deer Creek Falls. While it is a 150 ft. fall, I chose to capture this abstract close-up of the water-flow, layered against red rock and green foliage.
Of the many side canyon tributaries that drain into the Colorado River from the Grand Canyon, Deer Creek is a stream that flows through the western Grand Canyon and is fed by a series of springs providing a continuous base flow to creek. During periods of intense rainfall, It can experience severe flash flooding. In the final half mile above the Colorado River, Deer Creek flows through a narrow slot canyon before plunging over a 150 feet waterfall named Deer Creek Falls.
