The waterfall is over 100 feet high and is a very imposing presence in your visit. While it’s definitely the main attraction here, there are many other neat details of the area that are great to look at as well.
There’s great wide and sandy beach that splays out for quite a while that make it easy to sit and relax while you take everything in. You can also get some nice shade from cottonwood trees nearby as well.
The reason for the impressive blue water is a mix of calcium carbonate and magnesium. These are a natural combo of the area and are far more rich here than many of the nearby areas. Another neat fact about the water is that it’s typically very warm year-round. If you have been doing a lot of hiking this could be a great place to visit in the middle of your day so you can take a dip and refresh.
