Beaver Falls – Havasupai Indian Reservation

beaver_falls2

After getting stuck on a ledge and being taught a lesson by the canyon, I took this picture above Beaver Falls! It’s a long story but let’s just put it this way; I’ve been to Havasupai in Grand Canyon many times. It’s rugged beauty gets more rough as you head deeper and deeper into the side canyon before it empties into the Rio Colorado. The blue water is colored by a mineral known as Travertine which redeposits itself and forms these waters falls from driftwood dams and other debris. I just got back from this trip last night and it was one of the more memorable trips and visits amongst the Supai!

Barrier Style Pictographs – Hanksville Region, Utah

These pictographs are unknown to the general public and it is my policy not to disclose location information of these sacred and sensitive sites. I feel it is important to share the beauty though, so people can see what some of these sites look like. Please do not ask me for location information because I will not tell you. These pictographs are believed to be around 5,000-8,000 years old and were left by the Western Archaic hunters & gatherers whom predate ancient Puebloan (Anasazi) peoples.
