Streams, Waterfalls, and Waterbodies.

Though large regions of the American West are desert, there are still many major mountain ranges cutting through the vast landscape. Moisture from the Pacific Ocean is blown inland and is captured by the high peaks and ranges, precipitating miles of clear water streams and silt laden rivers, interrupted here and there along the way by many beautiful waterfalls and natural and man-made waterbodies. In the hot months these water features are big tourist draws. Here are the locations that we've visited that feature some of the best.
