Big C wanted to run Cottonwood Creek (the outlet of Joe's Valley Res.), so Princess P and I went with him and made the river over the mountain. Our friend A came as well, to see the beautiful river. It is one of the few rivers in Utah that has clear water instead of brown.

The drive over to Joe's Valley is so pretty. We go straight over our mountain and down the other side. We saw a momma deer and a tiny, new fawn in the middle of the road. The fawn laid down in the road it was so scared then ran away and laid by a tree. I snuck up and took a photo. I can't believe how well they are camouflaged. I never would have seen it if Big C hadn't pointed it out.

Even though it was Big C's first time running this river, he had a clean, smooth run and loves this river more than ever. This was always his goal river to do when he got good enough. Now he does it all the time.
|Princess P is so beautiful!|
When he got to the take out we had a little al fresco lunch by the river. It was such a pretty day. Joe's Valley is one of those hidden little oasis in the desert that no one knows about. It is such a gorgeous place and there is hardly ever anyone there. We love it!
