Havasu Falls

For our money, Havasu Falls may just be the prettiest place on the face of the Earth. It certainly has to be on the short list. A one hundred foot waterfall, blue-green pools, canyon all around...just perfect. And we're not the only ones who think this...

During one of our two days at Havasu Falls, we met a family from (of all places!) Washington, DC. Believe it or not, they are also on a five-week road trip, doing the same basic path as us but in reverse. So while we have been to places like Memphis already and they will be there later in their trip, they have been to places like New Orleans already and we will be there later in our trip. We just happened to cross paths deep down at the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Anyways, the dad in the family has been wanting to come to Havasu Falls for about twenty years. As he related it to me, he was actually nervous that he had so hyped the place up in his mind for so long that he would be disappointed when he finally got there. I mean, how could it be as beautiful as he was imagining it? Well, he came around the last bend in the canyon, saw it with his own eyes, and was definitely not disappointed. Neither were we...
