This was a lovely area with a short walk to see the falls. In the middle of the desert one does not really expect to see this. The desert is so amazing! The greenery to the left of the falls was very lush and we were surprised that the falls still had this much water long after the rainy season. However, we had just been to Carlsbad Caverns which is soooooo wet that we should not be surprised by the amount of underground water in this area.
