Images of a Grand Canyon hike to Havasu

Havasu

October, 2012

At the bottom of the Grand Canyon, in the land of the Havasupai Tribe, are some of the world's most beautiful waterfalls. The colors of the falls and creeks are what photographers hope for and what nature rarely delivers. These photographs are representative of the land and waters from the summit of Hualapai Trail to the series of waterfalls within the canyon.

This area gets many visitors. Fortunately, the beauty has not been defaced or traumatized. The amount of hiking involved may be largely responsible for its preserveation since that deters a less respectful clientele. Add to that the palpable peace and calm of the area, which must surely have a positive effect on behavior. Oh, and no liquor of any kind is permitted on Havasupai land.
