A number of years ago, David Matheny and his father Bob Matheny, hiked up to the falls and discovered two young females sun bathing in the nude. Bob asked them if they had a permit to be naked.
On another subsequent hike up to the falls, Brit John Francis (exchange teaching at Southwestern College at the time) and Bob bathed in the shockingly frigid pool for about a minute in their underpants.
The lava tube is on loan from the Upper Calf Creek Fall's slick rock trail near Johnson's Folly* (Boulder) Utah. Natural ephemera is from the Azure Vista/Brindisi area in San Diego. The small rocks are on loan from the Great State of Art. The small boulder is on loan from Boulder.
*In 1969, the town of Boulder, Utah, passed a resolution changing its name to Johnson’s Folly, and predicted the town’s demise after President Lyndon B. Johnson added thousands of acres to Arches and Capital Reef National Monuments which were both later designated national parks by Congress.
The town later reverted to its original name, and on its Web site the Boulder Business Group now proudly calls the town the “gateway to the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.”
