Amazing backpacking trip with Kristen. Opted for the bypass which is now the main trail (don't believe this was the case last time I was here), as I wasn't sure of the condition of the trail near slickrock, especially with the volume of water flowing through the creek after Newton (which was the whole point of the trip). Plenty of water after 6" rain earlier last week. Various observations indicated the water had been quite a bit higher recently, which isn't surprising. We set up camp just above the fork near the falls lookout point. The campsite I used to use is now full of cut logs and stumps from trail maintenance. I guess they figure a flat spot next to the trail is better to store that stuff than kicking it down the mountain. Or maybe they wanted to decommission the only semi-established little campsite in the area. Regardless, we made do nearby and obviously made sure to LNT. Scrambled to a viewpoint for both sunset and sunrise. Such a photogenic waterfall when it's running strong. Long drive for a single night but totally worth it when conditions are that perfect.
