More Big Tooth Maples!
The Lower Pool sits at the base of a waterfall from the Middle Pool.
Just past the lower pool the trail splits; stay to the right to the Grotto or go left up some steep steps to the middle pool.
This series of pools is very popular; it's good to keep a sense of humor.
Big Tooth Maples continue to steal the show.
The upper pool sits at the bottom of a very high cliff; it's kind of a bowl and not the kind of thing my camera can capture! This is a long shot to the top where the tree is evidently growing along the stream that feeds the pools.
Back down the trail to the Grotto, I'm sorry to say I offended a family visiting from Europe. No need to go into my whole side of the story, but I bet they have been telling about the mean old woman they met on the trail in Zion!
One last look up the canyon, wishing I had planned a couple more days.
The view from my camp was really pretty nice; very late sunset on Watchman.
