Upper Deer Creek
Deer Creek, or at least one branch of it, emerges from a spring near the base of the limestone as a waterfall, then travels through a wide open and surprisingly lush valley to its canyon through the Tapeats. The waterfall and the pool at the spring were refreshing and shady. Past visitors (modern, not Anasazi) have created stone chairs and thrones from the fallen rocks and we hung out in the alcove for lunch.
