Years ago my friends had told me about a place called "Two-Butt Falls." I know- I learned it wasn't the correct name just the other day- and actually I think the name they told me was made up by them! Makes for a rough go when you Google "Two Butt Falls"- I don't recommend it! Come to find out it's actual name is Ely Creek Falls, and it's part of a trail that starts at the Jones Hole Fish Hatchery. In all my almost 13 years of living in Vernal, that was my first trip to the Fish Hatchery- it was pretty cool- but the drive into the actual "hole" of Jones Hole is amazing! We drove quite a while through a lot of brown and yellow dirt, only to have it open up to this amazing rock mountain and dive down into a deep...well- hole! Next time any family comes to visit- this would be a fun one to do! (Mom, that means you need to come up ONCE when I'm NOT sick!)
So, why would they call it "Two-Butt?" I honestly don't know- cause when they explained it to me they said it was because it takes two butts at the top to plug up the waterfall and back it up for the ever famous "power-shower" that comes next- but for us- it only took one of Gage's butts! He was the perfect size to plug the stream that turned into the waterfall- and Ali got blasted more than once at the bottom! The water was frigid!
I have to say- I was a little surprised at how small the waterfall ended up being- but it was fun just the same. It was so pretty! Have I over-emphasized how beautiful it was? I LOVE THIS WEATHER!!
