Deer Creek Falls in the Grand Canyon

deer creek falls grand canyon watercolor paintingDeer Creek enters the Colorado River with a spectacular 200 foot waterfall, cutting its way through Tapeats sandstone down a narrow slot canyon.  You can hike up to the Deer Creek Narrows on a trail just downstream of the falls.

I painted the scene from across the Colorado River one hot autumn afternoon, waiting for our hikers to complete Thunder River loop and make their way down the Deer Creek drainage.  We camped that night at “Across form Deer Creek” camp and listened to the sound of the waterfall in our dreams.
